    Had a letter through from NTU asking me to go for an interview along with portfolio of work and a load of other requirements to bring.
    Was wondering if anyone knew the format of the interviews for the Interior Architecture course and if they expect you to have already done a Foundation Course in Art? (Its not mentioned as a requirement for the course, but was turned down at a Leeds Met interview yesterday for not doing a Foundation course even though it wasn't in the requirements) Any tips on improving my portfolio to ensure it stands out would also be appreciated!

    Would be grateful for any feedback so I can suss out exactly what I need, my confidence has taken a knock from Leeds Met

    No course, not even the AA or UCL require you to do art foundation. This is just urban myth. It's a nice to have, you can get in to any architecture course in the Uk without Art foundation.

    check out finalcrit.com for examples of student work from architecture. Keep it neat, simple and and consistent You should have probably done this kind of portfolio presentation in Alevel art/dt/product design anyway. I didn't have a clue when I applied and just cliped a load of A3's together. Seemed to work.

    They aint expecting da vinci - it's 1st year. Show your creativity and a bit of enthusiasm. Try and show a few different mediums if you can (photos, pencil sketches, models/videos). Stay calm and just answer the questions the best you can.

    I forgot to add - The interview is more about YOU and your ideas, and your approach to design. It's not generally a case of .."hmm he's not quite hatched that properly" or "the hue on that photograph is a little bit out".

    good luck with your app.

    Thanks very much for replying. you said you had an interview there, how did it go? Did you get offered a place?

    Also, what form did the interview take? My letter says something about a group activity, is that presenting my portfolio to the group as I heard in previous years that's what happened.
