Architecture BA(Hons): Portfolio guidance

Information required to support your application

We are interested in your creative ability as well as your academic achievement. You will be asked to show a portfolio of work during your interview and the following guidance is to help you prepare this:

  • Please make sure that your portfolio is clearly labelled with your name and contact telephone number.
  • Carefully select and edit your portfolio to produce an exciting, creative and representative document, which informs us about your skills, interests and ambitions.
  • Your portfolio should have a maximum of 10 sheets and may be up to A1 in size. You should carefully select these sheets. 
  • If you prefer not to separate your portfolio, you will need to place the 10 selected sheets at the front of your portfolio.
  • Please be prepared to speak about your work during your interview using these 10 selected sheets.
  • We are interested to see a recent sketchbook and this can be included within your portfolio too.
  • We will be looking at the work in your portfolio to provide evidence of your potential as a designer.
  • Your portfolio should demonstrate your creative skills and may include a range of media with sketches, collages, life drawings, paintings, photographs of models or photography all being valid.
  • We would particularly like to see one image, either photographic or drawn, exploring your interest in architecture and urban spaces.
  • Your portfolio should include observational drawings. We prefer these to drawings copied from a magazine or photograph.
