What do international art & design schools look for in application portfolios? Last Saturday at our Globe Ed session on portfolio creation in openhouse, Art and Design students learned what to include in an application, the importance of research for it, the value of keeping a sketchbook and the huge variety of international art & design programs. Ritika Agarwal, a graphic design graduate shared her experiences as a student in Singapore and UK. We learned about the advantage of cultural diversity in the student communities of UK and the strong presence of Asians in Singapore. Ritika told us how beauty is interpreted in art, how the thought and process of creation holds more value in the west and the extensive collaboration work among students within the creative schools. A participating student, Saloni showed us her minimalist artwork made using a matchbox which won many accolades. If you are interested in studying art & design abroad and want to learn more about portfolio creation, come to our office and discuss your plans with our Globe Ed team.
Is studying in Germany really free? Last Saturday a group of students discussed their career plans at our Globe Ed workshop on higher education in Germany at openhouse. With its 450 universities and 17.000 degree programs (almost 2000 of them in English) Germany offers a diverse range of study opportunities and is the 3rd most popular country for students worldwide. The highly international environment, affordable living expenses and very low tuition fees (and often none at all), the 18 months post study work permit and the wide range of job possibilities are attracting more and more Indian students every year. If you want to learn more about possibilities of higher education and a career in Germany, come and discuss your plans with our team at the Globe Ed office!
