    Is architecture degree with foundation year good?
    That would depend on the course concerned, how it is taught, the success rates/drop out rates and whether it suits you better than any alternatives.

    Hey I've sent mine off to Nottingham! What I did was create a separate document on Publisher and made a different one to the one I submitted for Oxford Brookes. If you want, message me and I can show you my portfolio?

    Btw, I can't believe the amount of replies on this thread! Wasn't expecting it (because I made it haha)

    So I took photos of my work and put them all into publisher and then I saved the file as a pdf. If your file is too large on publisher, you can cut down the quality of your images when you save the file as a pdf. For the cover letter, I put a title page in my portfolio on publisher and this is the same thing I did for the letter confirming my work.

    Originally, the size of my publisher was about 40mb (max for portfolio is 10mb) but when I saved it at a lower quality for the pdf, it was reduced down to 2.3mb.

    Hope this helps! If you have any problems feel free to quote/message me

    My portfolio for Nottingham is due on Tuesday too, this may seen like a daft question but I was wondering if you had to present your portfolio and the layout of your work artistically or if submitting each image on a white document was enough?

    I'm not sure about Nottingham but for my portfolio I had more than one image per side, so I had to lay it out artistically to an extent. If you have tons of sheets (20-30) then you can probably get away with one a side, but any less and it might be worth putting more.
