20 March 2017
Friday 24th March is the final application deadline for almost all art and design courses at UK universities. Applications should arrive at UCAS by 18:00 (UK time) and reference needs to be completed before the application can be sent.
In most cases, students will be required to submit a portfolio, showcasing their creativity, imagination and technical ability. It should consist of no more than 30 high quality images or pieces of work, including sketches and drafts to show how ideas have developed. Art schools and universities want to see how skilled of an artist you are, how you can apply that talent to different aspects of art and if you have a unique style.
If you have yet to finish your art school application, the SI-UK Art & Design Service offers art and design portfolio review and preparation sessions led by Colin Kerrigan, the Executive Director at International School of Creative Arts. These sessions provide a unique opportunity for international students to gain expert practical advice and support from a former Deputy Director of UAL and practising artist, who has exhibited sculptures in the UK and internationally.
My consultant was very helpful and motivating. She helped me every step of the way, even when the deadline was so close. I feel I could not have done it without her. I'd highly recommend this service to any and all of my many friends interested.
