47 Inspiring Student Portfolio Examples

Last Updated August 31 2022

Written By Juhil Mendpara

We don’t expect student portfolio websites to be perfect…they are, after all, portfolios made by students.

If you don’t know, we’ve published collections of multiple portfolio websites - art portfolios, architecture portfolios, photography portfolios, web designer portfolios, copywriter portfolios, UX portfolios, etc. Only the websites above a certain (excellent) web design standard get into those collections.

Since this is a collection of student portfolios, the bar is comparatively lower (of course, we looked for fundamentals like site structure & hierarchy, clear typography, etc.).

Still, most websites I came across didn’t get in.

This is the collection of those that did, i.e., these are the best student portfolios I found.

Note: Many of these portfolios are of web design, UX design, and related-field students because they (obviously) tend to make better websites. But I have tried to include all kinds of student portfolios.
