Hey peeps,
I'm planning to apply to study intermedia art for a 2019 start, and I'm pretty stressed because I know it's really hard to get in. Does anyone know anyone who is studying art at Edinburgh, and can send a link to successful work or portfolios?
Thanks
And we're in this together, future applicants.

I don't know about Intermedia but I found an incredible mini-portfolio for Illustration by user Edenre who stated she received an unconditional offer for it in a 4 year old thread.

God, that's a fantastic portfolio! Guess I know what I'm aiming for then...Hello! I'm Isabella and I'm hoping to get into the Illustration course at Edinburgh, although it seems pretty tough. I've just started the second year of my UAL Extended Diploma with a predicted Distinction, so fingers crossed I get in! Is it true that Edinburgh doesn't do any face-to-face interviews? It actually worries me more now that I know my PS will be the sole indicator of my personality...I'm also applying for Kingston, Leeds, Loughborough and Camberwell. Kingston used to be my first choice, but Edinburgh looks much prettier and seems like my only chance to go to a old Russell Group university on an art degree.(Crossposting from the main Ed applicants thread)

I think theyll be quite slow with replying and might only get back to everyone after the portfolio deadlines (which is the end of January)

I’m legit so confused on what to put in portfolio as I’m applying to Illustration as well (of which only 7 scottish students can get into so I’m MEGA stressed) I do a lot of character design and my Influences are literally Harajaku Fashion, Studio Trigger and my negativity towards boring looking things. But I’ve looked at other portfolios and it’s just not to the same standard... mine is very bitty and doesn’t consist of large pieces and my grades aren’t exactly amazing with ABB at higher currently... I wish they had more examples online as my art teacher abandoned me last year and is very negative rather than critical.

It’s good to know that other people are in the same boat.

Hi JReiss,
I figure you've probably already seen their Art and Design portfolio guidance but I thought I'd link it just in case. https://www.eca.ed.ac.uk/sites/defau...LET%202019.pdf

Tbh I wouldn't worry tooooo much about big pieces, I think it's more about ideas and passion at this stage. And ABB seems pretty darn good and it looks like that's what they'll take ( I'm in England so idk how different things are). It's a pretty stressful time and I agree that a lot of people are doubting their abilities because Portfolio Anxiety but I'm sending positive vibes and I really hope your application goes well and you get in! Whether you get in or not, you'll have options, whether that's another uni or clearing,etc, so you always have a back-up.

I finished uploading my stuff on the portal today and I'm sending it off tomorrow. I read on the site that we shouldn't expect to hear till March but omG I hope they get back sooner than that bc I am so nervous!

I’ve gotten offers from all my unis now except Edinburgh... waiting for a reply until March just makes me feel so nervous! :argh:

Do you think people who’ve done Extended Diplomas (as suppose to A Levels) are at a disadvantage? Edinbugh seems to be all about that academic profile, and I don’t know how I’d compare to all you A-level follks.

I doubt this matters much for creative subjects, but so long as you have achieved the required amount of distinctions and merits they want (I haven't checked the req for this) it's not something I would worry about at all. It comes down to how stunning your portfolio is.
