Full-time portfolio preparation

Our Portfolio Preparation courses can help you take your skills to the next level and develop a portfolio for application to further studies or to go directly into professional practice. We offer courses across the different areas of art and design. Students from these courses have previously gone onto the Foundation Diploma in Art and Design, BA and MA courses at Central Saint Martins, UAL and other top institutions, directly into industry employment, and set up their own design studios or freelance art practice.

We are currently offering Portfolio Advice Sessions for students interested in further study at CSM, for further information and to book click here.

Students from the portfolio courses have a very high success rate of entering their first choice college, so you can be sure that your time, dedication and enthusiasm will be well rewarded. Tutors will give you expert advice about application and interview processes, and will help you develop your work so that it represents your individual approach and sets your portfolio above others.
