The interview is an opportunity for us to find out more about your ambitions for the programme. It's your chance to ask any questions you may have about the course or Reading School of Art.
During your interview, you may also be asked to share more about your own work or project at its current stage.
On the interview day
A typical interview day includes an introductory talk about Reading School of Art and its programmes from our Head of Department, a presentation by one of our finalist students, a tour of Reading School of Art, and an interview with academic staff.
The interview panel will consist of a member of academic staff and one of the aims of the interview is to establish which programme is right for you. The interview provides an opportunity for you to show your work, discuss your ideas, enthusiasms and ambitions with members of staff and to ask questions about the programme.
How to prepare
The interviewers will want to discuss your work with you. You will be asked about recent exhibitions you have seen and contemporary artists that are important to you. The panel may also want to hear about your other interests and how they have influenced your thinking.
