I found the portfolio workshops really essential to know how a portfolio should be. It was beneficial to see how other previous students had made both their mini and main portfolios. I believe the final task to be the most effective as we had 30 minutes to make four portfolio pages to allow access into my favourite university. From this, I learned what I need to do over the Christmas holidays to improve and boost my portfolio. Moving forward, I will take what I have learned about what universities seek for in portfolios into my personal portfolio to make it the best it possible can be.
