Portfolio Submission for 2017 Entry


BCGD applicants are required to submit a portfolio with their enrolment application. We will not be evaluating your design abilities as these skills will be taught during the degree. We are interested in seeing your creative ideas, originality, curiosity and imagination, and how you implement this within your creative visual work.

A portfolio of creative work (at least 10 items) should include finished pieces and pieces still under development. We would like to see work in progress or work developed during planning a project as well as finished work to help us understand your creative thinking process.

The items might include:

  • Drawings
  • Computer-generated images
  • Sketches
  • Photography
  • Websites
  • Animation
  • Painting
  • Sculpture
  • Fashion
  • Digital story-telling

Submission Process

Submit your portfolio after you have completed an online application to enrol.

  • You can submit your portfolio as digital files on a USB stick or by email.
  • Please do not submit originals. Original pieces can be photographed and submitted as digital files by email, with individual works clearly labelled.
  • Each of the ten pieces should be accompanied by a title for each piece and a short (100 word max.) description of the work and its purpose and process of production.

Send Your Portfolio to

Faculty of Computing and Mathematical Sciences
The University of Waikato
