3.作品集准备建议

(1) 本科第一年(除digital futures外其他专业):Your portfolio should demonstrate a variety of your skills and approaches to art, design and media. You need to demonstrate that you are a visual communicator and that you are well-equipped to succeed at OCAD U. This can include experimentation in traditional and digital mediums or any combination. Keep in mind that when it comes to your portfolio, the most important feature OCAD U looks for is your ability to think creatively, shown in a diverse range of mediums.


  • Include a maximum of 10 pieces of your original work in art, design or media, including a creative journal/sketchbook to demonstrate your creative process

  • Demonstrate your ability to work with a wide range of techniques, materials and subject matter

  • Include works in 2D, 3D, time-based, lens-based, digital or traditional media

  • Originals are preferred, if you are presenting your portfolio in-person. If you can carry the work easily you can include it in your portfolio. If the work is too large to transport, is very fragile, or for site specific work, you may present the piece as a digital image or photograph. There are no other size limitations

  • Whenever possible applicants are strongly encouraged to provide their own laptop for the review of digital or time-based work for the in-person assessments. A limited number of laptops will be available during the reviews

  • Drawings may be from direct observation, such as figure drawing, still life, interiors and landscapes, as well as from imagination and memory

  • Please present work flat rather than rolled, mounted or framed.

  • Work exploring colour, form and mixed media approaches are welcome, as are three dimensional works, such as installations, models, jewellery, soft or hard sculpture

  • Feel free to include work that directly relates to the discipline that you are applying to

(2) 本科第一年digital futures :

Your portfolio is an important part of your admission application. Keep in mind that when it comes to your portfolio, the most important features we look for are passion and curiosity — along with your ability to think laterally or "outside the box." This can be shown through visual or non-visual work. You can include a maximum of 10 pieces of work, one of which will be your sketchbook/creative journal/process document etc.

If your strengths are predominantly visual: your portfolio needs to demonstrate a variety of your skills and approaches to art making. This can include experimentation in both traditional and digital media, shown in a diverse range of media. Work exploring colour, form and mixed media approaches are welcome, as are three dimensional works, such as models, jewellery or sculpture. You can also provide links to websites that you have designed or that contain your work.

If your strengths are predominantly non-visual: your portfolio should include your best project work from subjects, such as reports or extensive written work. You should also add any hobbies or interests that give us an indication of your passion and curiosity. Some examples include photography, craft, poetry, cartoons, homemade videos, model making, computer programs, Facebook or other websites.

If your strengths are both visual and non-visual: you can follow both sets of the guidelines given above.

额外要求——Evaluation Piece

An evaluation of a digital product, software or service is also a required element of the portfolio. Choose something that you consider to be truly exceptional or special to you and work out how it could be dramatically improved and impress us with your thinking. Just a few examples include an iPod, Amazon website, game console, car navigator, even Microsoft Word.

Your evaluation must be no more than two pages long. You may include:

  • Photographs, diagrams, sketches and drawings

  • An explanation of why the choice is special to you

  • What could be improved for now and for the distant future.
