    I want to apply to do an art foundation course at UAL, Royal drawing school and Kingston to eventually specialise in fine art. I'm just not sure how much work to put in my portfolio. Is it bad if all my work is what I've done on my fine arts a level at college? Or do they expect us to do our own projects in our own time? Also, do I have to include photography even if my main interest is in drawing/painting?

    It is important that you have variety in your portfolio. Colleges tend to expect art from outside of your A Level studies. Check with your uni/college course portfolio guidelines, as they usually publish them on their websites. You generally include your best work, experimental work, good photography, showing a range of styles and ideas.

    Good luck!
