What goes into a portfolio?

Portfolios are as unique as the individuals who prepare them. While there are no rules about what goes into a portfolio, we do expect your portfolio to demonstrate that you have thought through your experience and what you want it to represent. We expect you will include meaningful, relevant items from all your learning to create a clear picture of 'who you are' and 'what you know you can do'.

It is also important to include items that support and showcase your uniqueness. Many students include:

  • A statement of career goals
  • A resume
  • Work samples
  • A skills inventory
  • Evidence of knowledge and abilities
  • Learning narratives and reflections
