Whatever your current level, wherever you are from and whether you’re looking to gain a place in a top university or college, improve your skills or simply have an enjoyable time learning about art and design, we can make a real difference, as our recommendations show. We look forward to meeting you.

To get started, just follow the links below:

Portfolio Preparation Courses – for students looking to get into leading universities and colleges. Our alumni have gone on to study at Ruskin School of Art - Oxford, Goldsmiths, Kingston, University of the Arts London (UAL), University for the Creative Arts (UCA) and many other leading institutions, as well as abroad in the US, Italy, France and elsewhere. Courses include both physical and digital portfolio preparation. They are very flexible, and range from one to 24 weeks.

One-One Tuition – a useful addition to any of our courses, or simply a great way of getting fast results.

UCAS Assistance – we have an excellent track record in helping art and design students to showcase their achievements, skills and qualities, so that they gain a place in their chosen university or college.

Other Applications – in addition to UCAS, we also support MA, Foundation and clearing applications as well as career development applications and interviews.

International University Course Progression – successful student applications into top international university courses in Art, Design and Architecture in New York, Paris, Milan, Florence, Berlin, Antwerp, Copenhagen, L.A. and many more. Achieve your goals with London Art Portfolio.

Short Courses – an excellent way to build up your portfolio and creative ideas, during term times and holidays, including evenings. Perfect for students with other commitments such as work, family or visiting London. Great for team building workshops too.

Summer Portfolio School – offering courses designed to fit in with the holiday/vacation period. Summer is also the perfect time to visit some of London's many free art and cultural events.
