How to blow them away at interview

Now that you've done the application to UCAS you will be hoping to get an art school interview (or art college) over the coming weeks. You'll not be guaranteed an art school interview as some colleges now have an initial screening/selection by submission of a digital portfolio.

But if you've followed our advice in our many eBooks, eCourses and on our blog pages then hopefully you will be interviewed at your favourite college.

We've interviewed students at Edinburgh College of Art for entrance to the first year course for some 6 years. So we know how daunting it can be to have to big yourself up at your interview.

Your eBook 'How to blow them away at interview' really was a life saver. I was so nervous about getting an interview for art college and yet that was of course what I wanted. Before I read your eBook I didn't really know how to prepare, how to think about talking about my work or exhibitions that I like. But all the advice in the book was great, really down to earth and made the experience a little more bearable! Thank you. I'd recommend it to anyone and everyone applying to art college.
