Selection for the course is highly competitive. if you meet the entry requirements you will be asked to submit example pages from your portfolio. if you are then invited to an interview, you will be asked to present your full portfolio. We are looking for creative individuals who can show evidence of personal expression, creative ideas, related skills, and a depth of subject knowledge.
