Semester students can indicate a preference for study tour location. Final tour placement will depend on availability.

- Approximately 3 pages of project illustrations from one or several projects done in studio (or independently if relevant), accompanied by a short description.
The portfolio must be submitted as a digital PDF or hard copy. The pages should be formatted to A4 size (210mmx297mm) or US-Letter size (8.5"x11").
