College to GSA: Efolio Examples >

E-folio Examples
If you apply by the 15 January UCAS deadline, you will be asked to upload an e-folio. Each programme has different criteria and expectations, so consult the appropriate pages for further information.

There's no magic formula, but it may help to see examples of the kind of work that has helped college applicants gain an interview for a place in years 2 and 3. Remember, the e-folio is only one stage of the Admissions Process, you'll have to be successful at interview to gain a place.

Portfolio Examples
If your e-folio is successful, you will be given the opportunity to interview for a place. All interviews centre on discussion of the work in a physical portfolio which you will bring with you to interview. This work is often different or 'more than' the work that was in your efolio.

In some cases, your physical portfolio will be looked at before your interview or one interviewer will look through it while another asks you questions. It is unlikely you will be able to go through it page by page and describe its contents, so be prepared to talk about only a few pieces and answer questions when asked.

The portfolio shown here is only one piece of the puzzle. The interviewed applicant would have spoken about the work well and answered questions knowledgeably. The interview is about MORE than your portfolio.
