    Hi, I've moved your thread to the University of Oxford forum. But left a redirect in the Art forum where you originally posted.

    Hopefully some of the experts in here can help you

    There's also the course thread here (but it's not very active )

    I have also applied and had the same experience! Have you gotten any emails from your college since submitting the portfolio? What college did you apply for?

    I haven't received any emails from my college, which was brasenose cause I had a momentary feeling of bravery before I sent off my application as originally it was going to be open. Could be because I handed my work in on the Nov 3rd so they haven't had much time to look over it. Have you heard anything back from your college and where did you apply?

    The only email I got was after I submitted my application from both Ruskin and my college (which is New College) confirming that they got it, and then I sent them one asking if they got my portfolio (since I'm international, from the US, I was super nervous it got lost or wasn't in on time) and they said they have it and I will hear from New College soon. So idk!!

    I also applied to Slade, CSM, Chelsea, and Goldsmiths! You?

    I can't seem to find it again, but for at least one college, one part of it was a drawing assessment where you responded to two out of five prompts.

    As I recall one was drawing a skeleton in situ, one drawing the room from above, and another drawing in response to some passage of literature. I forget the other two.

    No idea as to the content of the interviews otherwise though, and it's possible it will vary between colleges. However you should probably be prepared to draw something I guess
