Digital Arts MA application portfolio advice
Your portfolio should showcase your work in digital arts. It can be on CD/DVD/USB, online submission or in the form of a website. It is also helpful to see any documentation of work in situations where it has been shown and to have some indication of how your work has developed over a period of time.
Once your application has been received, you will either be invited to an interview where you will present your portfolio of work (on campus for Home/EU applicants, via Skype for Overseas applicants), or alternatively you may be asked to submit a digital portfolio of your work.

What should a portfolio contain?
We are looking to see how you develop ideas and how you research effectively for your area of interest. Make sure you have a portfolio that demonstrates creativity, an in depth involvement in your work and also clearly documents its resolution.
Please bring a piece of written work or recent example of an artist’s statement. We like to see how well you can articulate your practice. Even though this is primarily a practice-based programme, you will have written tasks to do throughout the course.
