We are looking for evidence that you have the ability to take on board scientific principles and apply them to a creative endeavour.
Once you have applied to BSc (Hons) User Experience Design at NUA, we will ask you to prepare your portfolio for your interview.
This combination of methods are used to assess your suitability to the course. All elements should clearly demonstrate your passion for the subject and your individual creativity.
When compiling your portfolio, choose pieces that reflect your technical skill, creativity and personal interests.
You should also include finished projects that you are excited about and particularly proud of. We are interested in you; to understand what motivates your choice in discipline and your creative identity through your preferences and aversions. You may submit assessed projects and coursework, but we recommended that you include independent work where possible. These self-initiated projects and interests tell us a lot more about you and your ambition and illustrate your ability to generate ideas. We are keen to see individuality, passion, risk and analysis.
Avoid too much repetition in style and subject matter. Do include details about, instances, problems, data collection and audience research that has influenced your work. Tell us about competitions or prizes you have entered and/or accolades you’ve received.
Your portfolio should be relevant to the course, but do include a wide range of work that shows your technical competence, social curiosity, and understanding of functionality.
The best way to experience what NUA has to offer is to see for yourself at one of our open days for undergraduate or postgraduate courses.

As part of your offer, you may be asked to submit a piece of written work in addition to your application. This would usually be after your interview.
Your written work might be part of or an entire piece of written work between 500 and 1,000 words. You may submit an essay, report or a completed log. The writing should demonstrate your ability to think critically, make an informed analysis and confident communication in a subject area related to your proposed course of study. All written work must be in English and emailed as a PDF file to firstname.lastname@example.org.
