Entry Requirement
We recognise that design talent may not always be reflected in academic qualifications. Therefore we interview ALL applicants to make offers.
We welcome mature students and from other disciplines. You normally need UCAS 120 (new) points or equivalent.

We offer advice on your draft portfolio. At your interview, a current student will join in, to make you feel more comfortable, and to answer those questions that students answer best.
You and your family and friends are invited to join the talks and tours. If travel is difficult, we welcome portfolios by email, preferably in pdf files no larger than 4Mb.
Email us if you any questions about your interview or what to bring.
