Interview Days

Interview Days


Securing a place at Cardiff School of Art and Design (CSAD) is not just about exam results. We want to know more about you as a person, and as an artist, designer or maker. This helps us to ensure that our diverse and creative community of students and staff is the right fit for you.

This is why we invite our applicants to attend an interview day at our Llandaff Campus with a portfolio of their work.

Interview Days at CSAD are a chance for you to show us who you are and what you are capable of. They also give you the opportunity to see how studying here can benefit you - by meeting our staff, seeing our working environment and facilities and taking a campus tour.

The interview process varies depending on the course, but most involve a review of your portfolio and a conversation with the subject team. Some of our interviews are one-to-one, while others may involve group exercises.

All of our interviews are informal - we want you to feel relaxed and able to be yourself.

We’re looking for evidence of your enthusiasm, creativity and curiosity as well as your skills and potential as an artist, designer or maker.
