As part of your application you are required to submit an e-folio to artsportfolio@plymouth.ac.uk. Below is some advice on completing a portfolio.

What’s a good portfolio?

Please send in a careful selection of your design/art work, showing as broad a range as possible. Remember we are looking for your creative ability, so show how you generated ideas (including scans of sketches, sketchbooks and drawings), how you’ve developed projects, and your final outcomes. The majority of 3D work should be as photos – particular 3D objects you may have produced.

Following your portfolio submission, you may receive an unconditional offer if you are an exceptional candidate or already possess the required grades.
