Art Portfolio Seminar (Norwich University of the Arts)

Art Portfolio Seminar (Norwich University of the Arts)

Type: Seminar
Target: F.4 or above (Seminar)
Location: British United

Seminar Content

All students are required to present an art portfolio when they apply for an art & design programme. What makes a good portfolio? What kinds of works should be included and what shouldn’t? How should you present your portfolio? Should you write an explanation or let the work speak for itself?

In the seminar, Martin Schooley, Associate Professor & Course Leader of Graphic Design, and Rois Deegan, admissions representative, from Norwich University of the Arts will introduce all the basics of art portfolios, provide examples and share what expectation art schools have in their students.

  • The Basics of Art Portfolio: The sketchbook, How many pieces of work should you include? What kind of work can you include?
  • Specific portfolio requirement for different art disciplines
  • Examples of outstanding Art Portfolios from the past
  • The Advantages of Year 0: Norwich University of the Arts is one of the few UK universities that offer the option of Year 0 in art & design, which is an additional year attached to a standard 3-year undergraduate degree (students will be issued a visa that covers the whole 4-year period). Unlike a generic art foundation, in which students would explore different art & design disciplines to discover their interest, in the Year 0 students will focus on modules directly relevant to their art & design specialisms. In this section, Martin Schooley will explain from a teacher’s perspective the advantages of these two different approaches to foundation studies, to help students make an informed decision!

Interviews and Portfolio Assessment

After the Seminar, students with their portfolio are welcome to meet with Martin Schooley for admission interviews and portfolio assessments. If requirement is met, students will be issued conditional offers of a place in a suitable programme.
