Portfolio Interviews

Portfolio Interview

The majority of courses at The Cass interview applicants. The interview day is an opportunity to meet an academic tutor, talk to current students and explore the faculty.  An Interview will last between 15-20 minutes and it is essential that you bring a portfolio of your work.

During the interview we will ask you to explain your work its process and the ideas. It is an informal meeting to discuss your work and your interests.  We are interested in the individual applicant and what inspires them to apply to our courses.

During the interview, the lecturer will evaluate your creativity, your commitment, knowledge and your technical skills. Whilst looking at your work we will ask you about;

· Your ideas, and there importance to you.
· Its background and context.
· Your estimation of its strengths and weaknesses.
· Your methods and procedures.

Your ability to discuss your portfolio is as crucial as the work itself. After the interview you will not be told the decision. The admissions office will inform you of the outcome.

If you are invited to interview, our Admissions team will offer you a selection of dates to choose from by booking online.

Please note, Failure to attend your interview will result in you being withdrawn as an applicant. We will only change your interview date in exceptional circumstances.
