Portfolio Tips

Putting together a strong portfolio is one of the most important parts of your application, so it’s worth spending time on it to best showcase your work and your interests. We have lots of helpful suggestions you can follow.
You can also view our Portfolio advice video which may help to guide your portfolio preparation and answer your questions. It offers specific guidance about which artworks to include, how many, how to present them, and much more, plus useful tips for making your portfolio stand out.

Interview Tips

We know that interviews can be stressful, but we will do our best to ensure your experience is as relaxing and enjoyable as possible. This is your opportunity to talk about your art practice and why you want to study at the NAS.


The interview panel consists of two members of NAS academic staff. They will ask you a range of questions relating to your interest in the arts, your portfolio, and your reasons for applying to study at NAS. As part of this interview, we review your portfolio and discuss how you see your work developing. You can also ask the panel any course-related questions you might have.
