Portfolio Tips for Future Students

What is a portfolio?

Your portfolio is a showcase of your best and most current work. It is an important part of your application to all of our undergraduate programs and should shine a spotlight on your skill and creativity.

There is no magic formula to the “perfect” portfolio. However, there are proven strategies you can use to ensure your intent is clear when submitting your portfolio as part of your application to university.

Find tips, a workbook with prompts to help you create, and ways you can get feedback from us while you develop your portfolio.
