The following services are suitable for international art students who are about to apply to art colleges for a Foundation degree, BA, MA or Ph.D. or that are currently enrolled in one of them. 

A lot of international art students are faced with the difficulty of adapting to a new educational and academic system which can be quite a daunting experience. In fact, the British art system for higher and further education is considered to be different from most continental and international ones. 

The support of Extracurricular Tutoring Art Course is meant to boost students’ confidence with their coursework and with the structure of their courses, but also with the potential language barriers. In particular, we aim at targeted support for art projects and written coursework (such as art essays, theses and dissertations) throughout the academic terms.

Through this course our tutors are able to provide targeted counselling for their Bachelor’s, Master’s Degree or Doctorate for fine arts, graphic, spatial, interior and fashion design, photography, illustration, and architecture. 

Our Aims:


 

  • Help art students to adapt as soon as possible to the requirements of the British Art University System.
  • Enable art students to follow the structure and syllabus of their art course, understand it effectively and be able to track their progress without being left behind.
  • Boost art students’ confidence with communication issues and enhance their grasp of the English language. 
  • Enhance art students’ ability to carry out independent studies, follow the pace of their art courses and propel their ability to investigate and research contemporary and traditional art theories.
  • Provide art students with tailored assessments of their progress in order to provide targeted advice and support for their art course.
  • Encourage art students to practice out in the field by providing them with lists of current art opportunities, art competitions and recruitment information that are available for them so to expand their CV.

ETC Structure


 

The structure of the ETC is divided in three terms in order to fit with the standard English art university system. Therefore, we will follow you term by term and will organise the mentoring side of the art course so as to help you keep up with the increasing load of coursework, requirements and expectations form your art educational institution.

Term I – Autumn Term


 

We will help you to decode the structure and syllabus of your art course so as to organise a timetable that will help you to understand the deadlines and the timescale for each art project or coursework. In particular, at the very beginning of an art course, the art student is expected to demonstrate and use preliminary knowledge that can facilitate the progress of the course. Moreover, we will develop specific learning programmes which will target the art student’s individual needs and requirements.

  • Written art coursework: We will follow the art student’s progress with their first written art coursework and provide counselling in order to solve their doubts about academic writing. We can help the art students in determining the direction of their research and advise them on the literature and the line of enquiry.
  • Practical art coursework/project: Art courses are known for the project-laden structure of the syllabus. Our art tutors will be able to guide students through the creation of their art projects, whether entirely practical or with required written material. Moreover, we train art students to develop the ability to fully understand and explain their work in order to extrapolate and establish meanings and ideas for their art projects.

Term II – Spring Term


 

At this stage, the art student should have a clearer understanding of the outline of their syllabus and what is required from them. Throughout this term, we tutor art students in order to enhance their ability to develop ideas independently and how to begin an art project or coursework by brainstorming ideas and investigating broader areas of interest and research. 

For students that have to submit important papers or projects this is the most intense time as it requires a solid assessment of the essays, dissertation or thesis. We will mentor art students with art coursework in its last stages. This is for art student to be able to develop written material with a clear bibliography and with a clear direction of the research.

 

Term III – Summer Term


 

The third term usually coincides with the summer period which is when most art students have to submit their final art projects and written assignments like dissertations or a thesis. This section is hence characterised by a focused counselling in order to guide the art students through the final refinements of their work. 

At the same time, this is a very useful time for international art students to prepare their preliminary material, research and knowledge for the year to come. In fact, during this term, art students are usually required to choose modules or areas of interest for their art studies scheduled for the next academic year. Hence, this is the perfect opportunity to understand the structure of their new course outline and the structure of the new year.
