3 ECA ART & DESIGN HOW TO APPLY

4 Application process There are three important stages in the applications process to Art and Design programmes at the University of Edinburgh: the UCAS application, the mini-portfolio and the Applicant Day. 1 UCAS application Deadline Thursday 15 January Mini-portfolio Deadline Tuesday 27 January 2015 (noon) 3 Applicant Days Monday 9 to Friday 13 March 2015 (2nd year entry only) Applications to Art and Design programmes are made via UCAS: You will be asked to complete an application form and provide personal information, a record of your grades and achievements to date and a personal statement about what you want to study and why. Your application form will also contain a reference from your teacher or tutor, giving further information about your suitability for the choices you have made and predicting your future exam grades. As part of your application to a programme in Art or Design at the University of Edinburgh, you will be asked to submit a digital miniportfolio to provide evidence of your artistic aptitude and potential. When you submit an application to UCAS, the University of Edinburgh will provide you with login details for the University s web portal, MyEd. You will use the EUCLID channel within MyEd to access the mini-portfolio system and upload your work. If you are applying for first year entry, a decision will be made on your application following miniportfolio assessment. You will not be asked to submit any further work or attend an Applicant Day. If you are applying for second year entry and are selected to proceed to the next stage of the application process, you will be invited to bring your full portfolio to an Applicant Day for assessment. You will not be interviewed. 4

5 Interviews We do not interview applicants to programmes in Art and Design. Our programmes are some of the most competitive in the UK and we have designed our admissions process to enable applicants to show us their potential via a system which is accessible and fair to all. Our mini-portfolio system was one of the first to be introduced in the UK and allows applicants to spend time selecting their best and most interesting work for us to assess. We do not believe it necessary to undertake a second assessment of work from applicants for first year entry, and so offers to these applicants are made following mini-portfolio assessment. All successful applicants to first year will be invited to attend a Post Offer Visit Day. As applicants for second year entry will have a more specialised body of work to show us, we ask these applicants to bring a full portfolio for us to assess at an Applicant Day. All applicants will have the opportunity to visit our facilities and meet programme staff and current students before making final decisions we want to be sure that your decision to come and study with us is the right one for you. Minimum entry requirements If you do not meet the minimum entry requirements, your application will be considered but your chances of being made an offer will be significantly reduced. SQA Highers BBBB by the end of S5 or BBBBB/ABBB from S4 S6 Standard Grade English at Grade 3 or National 5 English at Grade C GCE A Levels BBB GCSE English at Grade C BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Art and Design MMM GCSE English at Grade C International Baccalaureate Award of Diploma with 34 points overall and grades 555 in Higher Level subjects Standard Level English at Grade 4 5

6 Second year entry You should apply for second year entry if you have the qualifications required for first year and are completing a Foundation Diploma, relevant HND or equivalent. If you qualify for second year entry, you will not be considered for first year entry. Other qualifications Other qualifications may also be suitable for entry. Please contact the Admissions Office for further information. Contact details can be found at the end of this leaflet. Adult returner or mature applicants An adult returner is a student who has had a continuous gap of at least three years at some point in their formal education, and who has not already gained a degree. A mature student is an applicant who will be 21 or over at the start of their undergraduate degree programme. Adult returners and mature students will be applying to the University from a range of backgrounds, with a variety of different qualifications and having had very different life experiences prior to their application. The University values the contribution that such students make to the diversity of the student community. There is one stipulation we make for all mature and adult returner applicants they must have undertaken recent and relevant accredited study within two years prior to entry to their chosen degree programme. We accept a range of academic qualifications, including access programmes and open studies and encourage potential students to contact the Admissions Office for further advice. Contact details can be found at the end of this leaflet. 6

7 MA (Hons) Fine Art (UCAS code W150) The MA (Hons) Fine Art is a five-year degree programme combining academic study with practice-based studio work. The theoretical and historical elements of the degree are principally taught in the History of Art Department while the visual research and studio-practice elements are taught in the School of Art, both within Edinburgh College of Art. It is unique in its five-year duration and 50/50 balance of theoretical and practice-based study. While studying within the School of Art, you will work in purpose-built studios in a friendly and challenging environment, supported by a team of committed staff. The other half of your studies will be spent studying the intensive Art History component of the programme. Second year entry is not available to the MA (Hons) Fine Art. International (non-eu) applicants Deadline is Tuesday 30 June 2015 Application procedures for applicants from within the EU are the same as for UK students, as detailed in this leaflet. International (non-eu) students applying for a full-time undergraduate programme should also do so through UCAS: This is the organisation through which all UK students apply. However, UCAS deadlines and procedures are different for international applicants. If you are applying to a subject within Art or Design or to the MA (Hons) Fine Art course, we ask that you also upload a mini-portfolio, as outlined in the procedures above. However, international applicants to either first year or second year will not be asked to attend an Applicant Day or submit a full portfolio of work; assessment will be made upon the basis of your UCAS application form and mini-portfolio only. The deadline for international students to submit applications to UCAS is 30 June However, due to high demand for places, we would advise you to submit your application and mini-portfolio as early as possible, preferably by 15 January 2015 along with students applying from within the UK and EU. 7

8 Mini-portfolio guidance Deadline is Tuesday 27 January 2015 (noon) As part of your application, you are required to submit a mini-portfolio as evidence of your artistic ability and potential. The deadline for this submission is 27 January 2015 but you should begin to plan your mini-portfolio as soon as you decide to apply. Do not leave your mini-portfolio to the last minute late submissions will not be accepted. At this initial stage, the University is not necessarily expecting a showcase of final work, but rather an indication of work in progress showing how you approach an idea or subject and develop the work from initial enquiry, through experimentation and enquiry, to resolved work. For applications to Film & Television you should upload one or two digital video files (or URL links to them), each up to five minutes in length and accompanied by a short passage of text. In addition you will be asked to give written answers to three questions. For all other applications, we require up to 10 images of your development/sketchbook work, up to 10 images of your resolved work, and up to 5 images which demonstrate your influences. Each image can have up to 100 characters of supporting/explanatory text. The 5 images demonstrating your influences may be images of work or objects which have inspired or influenced your work for example: - people working in the same medium or for the same audience, now or in the past - people interested in the same subject or theme, now or in the past - natural or man-made phenomena, objects, places, events which have inspired or provoked a response If you are making multiple applications, you must upload a separate mini-portfolio for each application. This allows you to tailor the content to each subject and showcase your strengths in particular areas. However, this does not necessarily mean compiling a completely different set of images for each application. 8

9 What happens next? Once we have assessed your mini-portfolio(s), what happens next depends on whether you are applying for first or second year entry. If you are applying for first year entry, we will contact you with our decision by the end of March. If you are made an offer, you will be invited to attend a Post-Offer Visit day. If you are applying for second year entry, we will contact you if you are selected to proceed to the next stage, which is the assessment of your full portfolio at an Applicant Day. Post-Offer Visit days 1st year entry only If you apply for first year entry and are made an offer, you will subsequently be invited to attend a Post-Offer Visit day. Post-Offer Visit days typically take place in March and April and are opportunities for successful applicants to learn more about their subject areas and life as a student at Edinburgh College of Art and the University of Edinburgh. You will meet with academic staff and current students from your programme, tour the studios and other facilities and attend general information sessions. You will also get the chance to visit other University facilities such as the main library and sports centre. Applicant Days and full portfolio assessment 2nd year entry only If your mini-portfolio has been assessed as being of a high standard and you have been selected to proceed to the next stage, you will be invited by (which will contain full instructions) to bring your full portfolio to an Applicant Day. Applicant Days are expected to be held between Monday 9 March and Friday 13 March At Applicant Day, you will have the opportunity to view our facilities and meet staff and students while your portfolio is being assessed by a team of staff from the appropriate subject. There is then a Q&A session where applicants can ask members of staff specific questions about the subject they have applied to, or questions about the University. You will not be interviewed. Students who apply for more than one programme, and who are subsequently invited to an Applicant Day for multiple programmes, should bring only one portfolio to the Applicant Day, rather than multiple portfolios, but that portfolio should demonstrate work relevant to all subjects applied for. 9

10 Assessment of mini-portfolio and full portfolio Both mini-portfolios and full portfolios are assessed by a team of academic staff who are particularly interested in how you research and develop ideas in a visual way and how you engage with your chosen discipline. This is broken down into four main areas of assessment, briefly summarised as follows: Full portfolio guidance - Enquiry and Visual Research shows the level of your engagement in intelligent, structured visual enquiry and how well you communicate this; - Idea Development and Material/Technical Exploration shows your ability to appropriately explore and develop ideas, and your level of skills in the use of materials or techniques; - Critical Judgement, Selection & Resolution shows how well you judge which ideas have the most appropriate potential and your ability to bring them to a level of completion appropriate to your intended outcome; - Contextual Awareness shows the extent of your knowledge of the subject you have applied for and how your work relates to it. How the content of a full portfolio provides evidence for the above categories will vary enormously depending on the person and the subject being applied to, and no two portfolios will be the same. The guidelines for the full portfolio specifically avoid itemising sizes, types and quantities of work so as not to be prescriptive: there is no checklist! Having said that, we love sketchbooks, visual journals, etc. as long as they re not just scrapbooks. What is important is that your portfolio should be well prepared and edited, and appropriately presented so that the team can easily make their assessment. How thoughtfully you prepare your portfolio adds to the overall impression we get of you and your work. Your portfolio will need to include initial research/investigative work and examples of how you explore ideas, as well as examples of finished work. What form these examples might take is entirely up to you, but must be relevant to the subject you are applying for. On the whole, we put greater emphasis on the evidence of your visual curiosity, idea generation and exploration, and your energy, engagement and contextual awareness, than we do on high level technical skills and finish, but if you can demonstrate them all, so much the better. 10

11 If you have lots of high quality work, include it. It can show that you have talent in breadth and are hardworking and committed. If you haven t, select your best: these key gems can show us that you know what you are good at, and how to show it. Resist the temptation to pad out your portfolio with mediocre work. If you can draw well, let us see how well and in which situations drawing ability is highly valued and is useful in so many ways in most subjects; if you can t, show us how you have discovered and developed other ways of visualising your ideas: ingenuity and perseverance are also valued, and the ideas are paramount. It is quite alright to use images previously submitted in the mini-portfolio if you feel they are important in demonstrating your strengths. Because of pressure of time at Applicant Days, extensive written work is unlikely to be read, so keep any annotations brief, succinct and relevant. Further guidance on preparing a full portfolio will be provided if you are invited to an Applicant Day. Important Dates Mid-September Early November UCAS Apply opens EUCLID Mini-Portfolio opens 15 January UCAS deadline for Home/EU applicants 27 January (noon) Mini-portfolio deadline 9 13 March Applicant Days 30 June Final deadline for UCAS applications from applicants from outside the EU Do not leave your application and mini-portfolio to the last minute. Late mini-portfolio submissions will not be accepted. 11
