I think it’s about time I gave everyone an update on what I’ve been up to this last week and why I haven’t been posting!!
For the first part of this week I have been gathering together all of my recent work to put into a portfolio. After this was all together and looking as sleek as possible, I set off for my first interview at De Montfort (Leicester) on Tuesday.
It was a great experience, but probably one of the most nerve-racking at the same time! The man who was interviewing me asked why I wanted to study interior design and why DMU. I told him, and we talked about interior design as a whole for about ten minutes – it was very informal, almost like a chat, which was such a relief.
Having had our conversation I was feeling very confident about my portfolio of work I’d brought along with me and felt quite pumped up to express my passion.
After going through the whole thing, he told me that he really admired my work and the variety of things I’d bought along. He said I would bring a lot to the course and that he is going to recommend me a place. This doesn’t mean I have a place, but it means that I am almost there!!
Going back to DMU felt incredible. Other than possibly Manchester Metropolitan, it is definitely one I can clearly picture myself studying at.
With the first interview out of the way, I am now feeling a lot more confident for the others!
(I will be uploading some pictures of my portfolio over the weekend).
