Often times, students applying for creative programmes in areas such as music, visual arts, film, dance or drama are required to submit supplementary materials that demonstrate their talents. These can be particularly daunting and time consuming! Utilising the summer months to create material for these portfolios can be really helpful and ensures that you are spreading your effort out across a longer period of time. For instance, if you are a visual artist, you may consider enrolling in art courses where you can produce work in a specific media. Once you have a sense of which universities you will apply to, it is imperative that you take note of the specific university prompts. Not all creative supplements are the same! You will want to be sure that you follow the instructions for each university very carefully to maximise your chances for admission.
