WHY CHOOSE THIS SPECIALITY?

The first year marks the beginning of a process that encourages students to develop their own universe.  Punctuated by professional internships and practicals, the two semesters allow students to experiment with different artistic media and to begin making provisional choices, both in terms of technique and conceptual framework. This year allows them to explore possibilities and, gradually, to assert the way in which they wish to pursue their second year. In this sense, it is still a transition phase.

Year 1

The common curriculum in Year 1 with core modules gives a strong base of skills and knowledge while specialised modules reinforce important subject areas.

You will also develop important, lilfelong skills such as work autonomy and time management.

We encourage students to develop their own universe, experimenting with different artistic media and choosing the technique and conceptual framework for their work.

You will explore many possibilities and begin to define the specialties to you pursue Year 2.
