Thank you for your application to the University of East London. As part of the admissions process you are required to upload a digital portfolio of your work.

How should I send my portfolio?

You should upload a portfolio of your current work to support your application. Your portfolio must be a single PDF file or file containing a link to an online site.

Please note: We will not be able to consider your portfolio if it is not sent in one of the formats stated above.

When should I send my portfolio?

You should send in the portfolio within 2 weeks from the date requested. If you cannot meet this deadline please contact us otherwise your application may be withdrawn if we do not receive a response.

What do you expect to see in a portfolio?

The portfolio is a very important part of the application process. It should reflect broad examples of your work. This will be used as evidence of your creative ability and potential.

Your portfolio may include paintings, drawings, sketches, a personal sketchbook, design and photographic work, 3D-modelling, work in progress, etc. It should exhibit an understanding of spatial awareness.

We do like to see the creative and planning processes that have contributed to your work, not just the final pieces. We also like to see some work that reflects your own personal interests, i.e. work that you might have undertaken in your own time.

We want to see your passion for your work and you’re expected to present the portfolio in a positive and interesting manner. You will be expected to display care and thought in the way that your portfolio is presented; the organisation is no less important than the content.

You should have the ability to be self-critical and extend verbally your thoughts and ideas about how you might improve and explore your initial ideas.
