Hello! Thank you very much! I was actually only applying for the foundation course there, and this was 2011 so things might have changed a bit. But with the foundation, we just left our portfolios in a room, got called back about an hour later, they all had marks on them and no one knew what they meant until we got letter to say if we’d been accepted or not. I did go to an open day for the Camberwell photography course though, and it’s really good. Only reason I didn’t apply there for my degree was because London is so pricey to live in, but I would have loved that course.
My interview for the photography degree at Leeds was pretty laid back though, bit of a chat, flick through my portfolio and it was done. Best advice I can give is brush up on all the technical terms, and be confident in talking about your work and the concepts behind it. Also be able to talk about contemporary photographers works and why you like it, and maybe go to some exhibitions before your interview so that you can talk about them. All those things came up in my interview, so i’m guessing they might come up in yours.
Sorry I couldn’t be more help! Best of luck with your interview! I’ll have my fingers crossed for you!
