I am applying soon, just waiting for my school to approve my personal statement, I am looking at Loughborough Brunel Huddersfield Nottingham Trent and Ravensbourne. Where are you applying to? I am more worried about making my portfolio than the design tasks.

Loughborough, Brunel, Leeds, Northumbria and Sheffield! Portfolio worries me too, the only thing I have masses of is CAD.

I have a whole lot of CAD too which is why i am trying to build up on my sketch. But my biggest worry is the layout and putting my previous projects into and squeezing it into a page of A3. The most annoying thing about portfolio is that Brunel has a maximum requirement of 6 A3 pages while Loughborough said 20 Pages :mad:

That sucks.....but since I won't be able to go to the applicants day then I guess they might have more time looking at my portfolio?

I've applied to Brighton Brunel Nottingham Trent Loughborough and Bournemouth and I've got interviews at Brunel, Loughborough and Brighton so far. I'm also worried about the actual layout of the portfolio and how to arrange my work. I would really like to see an example of a university application portfolio because all the ones online are by graduates.

Hey, I need to start my portfolio. What are you including in your portfolio? So how many drawings (sketch and CAD) as well as projects? Also are you going to make two separate portfolios due to Brunel only requiring 6 pages?

Loughborough is 14 Jan and Brunel took about 2 days to reply for me. Well done on your offers! How did you find the Loughborough interview? I know interviews are supposed to be formal but did you find it quite formal for a design course because I seem to be getting that impression...
