Online Portfolio Interview

International applicants that have uploaded their portfolio to the UCA Applicant Portal and are still waiting to receive an offer letter, can have an online portfolio interview with an academic from UCA. They will review your portfolio and answer any questions you may have about your chosen course. The online interview is not compulsory and is only offered to you as an optional fast service.

If you do not want an online interview, you can upload your portfolio to the UCA Applicant Portal and wait for it to be reviewed online by an academic. If you are successful, then you will receive an official offer letter in due time.

Please click on one of the academics below to see their availability and arrange an interview.

Note: Please be careful to select an academic that can interview for your chosen course. Not all academics can interview for every subject. If you do not see your course and would like an interview, please contact .
