Interviews - Cambridge School of Art

At Cambridge School of Art, we want your application and interview process to go as smoothly as possible, so we've put together a guide of useful tips for your portfolio preparation and interview.

How will the interview process work?

You will be asked to book a 1.5 hour slot for your interview through our applicant portal. This will include a tour of the CSA facilities and a talk with our student ambassadors.

On the day, your family and friends are welcome to accompany you. While you complete your interview, we'll provide them with somewhere to wait, with free tea and coffee.

On Wednesday afternoons* we also offer:

  • A university campus tour leaving reception at 1, 2, 3, and 4pm
  • An accommodation talk at 2pm in LAB 005
  • A parents' talk ('What you need to know about University') at 3pm in LAB 005

*6 December 2017, 17 January 2018, 31 January 2018, 14 February 2018, 14 March 2018, 4 April 2018

If your interview is not on a Wednesday afternoon we recommend you also attend a University open day to find out more.

You will also need to bring your portfolio to the interview. For more information, visit our portfolios page.
