Portfolio Guidance for Applicants

We ask applicants to submit a portfolio. Find out what we're looking for.

We are excited at the opportunity to speak with you and look at your work.

Our student-centred approach depends on a two-way dialogue between our staff of award-winning academics, architects and students.

Your portfolio of work will give us an understanding of who you are and what interests you.

Students apply to the Lancaster School of Architecture with a variety of skills, having studied a number of different subjects: it is not always the case that applicants have studied Art or Design at A-level or GCSE for example, nor is this necessary.

For more information on what to include, please refer to the Lancaster School of Architecture Architecture Portfolio Guidance Document.
