Support, information, events and portfolio courses to help you prepare your portfolio for NCAD.
Here at NCAD we have developed a comprehensive Portfolio programme to ensure that you have access to the best information and guidance at every stage of your portfolio journey.
Your portfolio is an important part of your application for an undergraduate place at NCAD. You will need to submit a portfolio for every undergraduate course at NCAD, with the exception of the BA in Visual Culture, which does not require a portfolio.
Your portfolio represents who you are now, as well as who you may become as an art/design student and, later, as an artist or designer.
