A drop-in centre will also be set up for students to get free advice on how to start or develop their art portfolio - an important part of the SCA application process."The students get to talk directly to our academic staff about how to prepare a portfolio.
We find the feedback builds their confidence and puts them on the right track for applying to study at SCA," said Oliver Smith.
