I have seen 1000's of portfolios whilst interviewing students for Degree placements in UK Universities and for the British Council across Asia.

What will you learn?

You will learn what a portfolio is (in a physical & digital format), why they are important, how they are used for Academic and Professional purpose, and what your portfolio should contain. You will also get advice on Editing, Layout and Annotation (text), and some tips on dealing with nerves and confidence when it comes to presenting your portfolio of work.

What else is included?

The course starts with an introduction and overview. Examples of my work are shown and links to recommended websites for you to go explore and research. Optional Projects are available as PDF downloads to help you build great content for your portfolio, and there is a discussion section to chat about the course and ask questions.

“Really good pointers toward a thoughtfully considered portfolio presentation” Diane G.
