Digital portfolio guidance

Once you have made an application to the University of Derby you are required to submit an online portfolio for the following courses:

A portfolio is your opportunity to show us who you are, your creative ability and your potential.

Your portfolio should demonstrate your best work, be of high-quality, scanned or digital work in a PDF format sent using the on-line application form below.

The content of the portfolio should be the strongest examples of your work, and should contain a minimum of 15 and a maximum of 20 pieces; file size under 25MB is essential.

Your PDF portfolio will be reviewed by course academics who may then contact you for further examples of your work/information if necessary. If a portfolio is not suitable for the course you have applied for you may be asked to attend an interview and/or be considered for a similar course of interest including the Year Zero.

  1. A high standard of presentation
  2. Evidence of creative thinking
  3. Willingness to experiment
  4. Evidence of problem-solving
  5. Evidence that you’re passionate about the subject
