Congratulations if you’ve been invited to an interview for the BA (Hons) Fashion: Design and Communication course. All the information you'll need to prepare for your interview is provided below.

Because of precautionary measures due to the coronavirus situation we are no longer conducting face to face interviews but instead we will interview you via telephone after submission of your portfolio.

Steps required:

This could include photographic content, film, written text, graphics, illustrations and other communication mediums. It should contain a well-presented collection of work that is creative and imaginative. When compiling your portfolio, you should work with your current teachers at school or college, who know your strengths and can also give you a fresh perspective. The portfolio should give an insight into your work and it is intended to demonstrate your capabilities, personal style and potential.
    Tutors want to see your current ideas, practices, methodologies and lines of interest. Ensure you include your best work and annotate each piece, sketchbook or object carefully. You may also present work on social media or relevant platforms.

Please email this to apsadmissions@ljmu.ac.uk

Following receipt of this we will then carry out a telephone interview with you. You will be asked to speak about a piece of successful work or a piece of work that demonstrates progress or critical thinking. The interviewer may ask you a number of questions for more insight. Your portfolio will be reviewed in full prior to the interview, and your interview will last approximately 10 minutes.
