Hi!

I've asked the department to clarify the application requirements and this was their response:

We typically ask students to attend an interview that includes a 10 minute presentation on an interactive media project they have done in the past, or something they would like to work on in the future. We are looking for students who are interested in designing and making interactive media, not just critiquing or analysing media. We don’t expect students to have prior experience. Students who are completely new to the area often present ideas for games, apps, or interactive art they would like to make once they have the skills, rather than a portfolio of existing work.

The department also mentioned that they haven't confirmed whether they will conduct interviews this year and if they don't interview, they will look at the UCAS personal statement for evidence of interest in design and technical skills (programming, 3D modelling etc).

I hope this helps!
