HOW WE CAN HELP?
One of the most overlooked career fields/professions in the Gulf Region is the field of Art + Design. While Medicine, Law, Engineering and Business are all seen as a lucrative choice for employment upon graduation, many students and parents are unaware of the options and benefits that lie within creative courses and careers. Students who graduate from creative careers can be anywhere up to 10% more likely to find a job than from those who do not pursue a degree in the field. In present times, studying a subject under the umbrella of Art + Design doesn’t have to mean that after receiving your degree, you will be a starving artist. Many of the hot careers of the day involve a creative aspect, such as:
- Game development and Game Art Design
- Interior Design
- Graphic Design
- UI/UX Design
- Product Design
- Film and Video Production
And so much more!
Many students who like to think outside of the box, enjoy active learning and feel like they are limited by a traditional setting find themselves well-suited to pursue a creative field. Applying for these fields do not typically have the stringent standards of admission and require a different set of criteria to be successful in application.
Many schools do not require SATs, or even high grades, but will conduct interviews and evaluate a collection of your work to evaluate your potential talent, otherwise called a portfolio.
If you are interested in a creative, Art + Design degree, most schools will ask to present a portfolio, or a body of work that represents your skill and potential, and most students are not aware of where to start, or how to compile one. Luckily, our consultants experience comes in handy for students in this aspect! We have former Art + Design admissions officers on hand as consultants who will work with you to review, prepare and present a portfolio of your best work, and conduct mock interviews in preparation for your university portfolio interviews! Our students have seen admissions to institutes like NYU, Parsons, Pratt, University of the Arts London, Manchester, Glasgow, SCI-ARC, Architectural Association and beyond. If you are considering a creative career, speak with one of our admissions consultants today to see if it is the right fit for you.
