Candidates may bring with them a selection of Art work, and are encouraged to bring other current project or course work of interest in subjects such as History and Geography and Scientific investigations.

Candidates will also be invited to an interview with the Director of Studies and in some cases with an appropriate Head of Department to establish their level of ability in other subjects.
