Type: Seminar
Target: F.4 or above
Location: British United / Watch from Home

Undergraduate Year One in Top 30 UK universities normally require 544 to 555 in HKDSE, with subject-specific requirement depending on your choices of programmes. If students fall short of such requirement, they can progress through International Year One or University Foundation Courses. These programmes accept entry at 433 to 222 in HKDSE and enable qualified students to progress onto Year 2 and Year 1 of an undergraduate programme in Top 30 UK universities respectively. Students aiming for top universities and highly-competitive subjects such as medicine and actuarial sciences, however, will benefit from the 1-Year A-levels which also allows them to apply to universities in Hong Kong through the Non-Jupas route.

In the seminar, our education consultants will introduce these four options for HKDSE students. Content includes university options, subject options, entry requirements, plus the procedures and important dates of UCAS.

Content Highlights

  • How does UCAS work? What are the important dates?
  • How to make best use of the five application quotas in your UCAS application?
  • Is it possible to have the sixth and the seventh quota?

An Admissions Talk on Applied Computer Science & Creative Technologies (University of the West of England, Bristol)

Type: Virtual Seminar
Target: F.4 or Above (Seminar)
Location: British United / Watch from Home

Main Theme

Nowadays there is little doubt that Computer Science offers wonderful career prospect, with new jobs and roles coming out every now and then. And there is also an increasing interest from students. However, many students would hesitate when it comes to making the leap into applying for Computer Science programmes. ‘Would it be too hard for me? Coding is quite abstrast and tough, isn’t it? And I’d need a strong maths and science background to excel? It’s probably not for everyone!’, and so the thinking goes!

If that’s the internal dialogue you’ve gone through, these applied Computer Science and Creative Technologies programmes we’re going to introduce might just be the right choice for you!

As computer technology expands its territories into virtually every industry, there are now a wide range of specialisms within the field of Computer Science, each catering to different needs of a particular sector. And many universities in turn have developed programmes that focus on these specialist areas! These applied Computer Science programmes could be easier to cope with for many students, as they come with a set context of application.

Seminar Content

In the Seminar, a lecturer from UWE Bristol will provide an overview of the latest development in the field of Computer Science and Creative Technologies and introduce the programmes in the University, covering course structure, entry requirement, tuition fees, career prospect and professional qualifications, in the hope to help students find the right subject area within the disciplines of Computer Science and Creative Technologies!

Is Computer Science Really that Difficult?

Is a traditional Computer Science programme really that tough? If it is, which part of it do students usually find most difficult? In this section, the lecturer will explain the difference between traditional Computer Science and applied Computer Science programmes. Which type of students would likely excel in a more general Computer Science programme, and which might be better doing an applied Computer Science programme?

There is More Than One Way to Code!

Students will also have the opportunities to experience industry-standard trade fairs in the UK, USA, France, Belgium, etc. In the past, students from Leeds Arts University have won awards in the New Designers trade show in London, as well as Surtex in USA. The programme involves elements of graphic design, textiles and product design – a very good option for students interested in these areas of design! Comic & Concept Art, one the other hand, focuses on character creation and storytelling. The practical skills taught in the programme are useful techniques for the comic and advertising industries, and particularly valuable to pre-production in film, television and game design!

Virtual Art Portfolio Seminar (Norwich University of the Arts)

Virtual Art Portfolio Seminar (Norwich University of the Arts)

Type: Virtual Seminar
Target: F.4 or above (Seminar)
Location: British United / Join from Home

Seminar Content

All students are required to present an art portfolio when they apply for an art & design programme. What makes a good portfolio? What kinds of works should be included and what shouldn’t? How should you present your portfolio? Should you write an explanation or let the work speak for itself?

In the seminar, Nuala Motel-Casey (International Officer) and a lecturer from Norwich University of the Arts will introduce all the basics of art portfolios, provide examples and share what expectation art schools have in their students.

  • The Basics of Art Portfolio: The sketchbook, How many pieces of work should you include? What kind of work can you include?
  • Specific portfolio requirement for different art disciplines
  • Examples of outstanding Art Portfolios from the past
  • The Advantages of Year 0: Norwich University of the Arts is one of the few UK universities that offer the option of Year 0 in art & design, which is an additional year attached to a standard 3-year undergraduate degree (students will be issued a visa that covers the whole 4-year period). Unlike a generic art foundation, in which students would explore different art & design disciplines to discover their interest, in the Year 0 students will focus on modules directly relevant to their art & design specialisms. In this section, the speakers will explain the advantages of these two different approaches to foundation studies, to help students make an informed decision!

Details of Event: How can I Watch the Seminar from Home? Can I Meet with the Admissions Representative for Portfolio Assessment and Interview?

The seminar will also be delivered via Zoom. Students and parents can watch the seminar in our office and meet with our education consultants right after the seminar. Alternatively, you can also choose to watch the seminar in the comfort of your own home. Simply select your preferred “Mode of Attendance” as you complete our online form, we will then make the appropriate arrangements.

After the Seminar, students with their portfolio are welcome to meet with the lecturer for admission interviews and portfolio assessments. It doesn’t matter if students don’t have a complete portfolio yet – you are welcome to show the lecturer your existing artwork, so that you can learn what to include and find out which subject areas might be more suitable for you!

Norwich University of the Arts is a creative community of 2700 students led by a teaching staff who are themselves practicing artists and designers. The majority of its students are British and only 10% come from overseas. Notable alumni include Stuart Craig (Production Designer on Harry Potter film series), Brian Bolland (Graphic Novel Artist on Batman comics) and Keith Chapman (Creator of Bob the Builder).

In addition to undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, Norwich University of the Arts also provides foundation programmes in the form of a Year 0.

University for the Creative Arts (UCA) is a specialist art university in the UK, which teaches in diverse areas of visual arts (such as Animation, Architecture, Fashion Design, Film Production, Interior Design, Photography and more), with new ventures into new media such as Computer Games Design, Creative Coding & Technology.

University for the Creative Arts (UCA) has four main campuses located in cities in the south of England. With London within reach of a 30- to 60-minute train ride, students enjoy the great exposure to exhibitions and galleries in London, without the burden of London’s cost of living!

  • UCA Canterbury – Just an easy one-hour train journey from London and home to three universities, the historic city of Canterbury is a superb destination for international students! Fine Art, Architecture, Interior Architecture are particularly notable courses in UCA Canterbury. Other visual art courses include Illustration & Animation, Graphic Design, Creative Computing and many more!
  • UCA Epsom – Epsom is home to the unique UCA Business School for the Creative Industries, which as its name suggests offers a range of business courses tailormade for the creative industries, such as Advertising, Digital Marketing, Event & Promotion Management, Business Management and more. For creative courses, there are the options of Fashion Design, Fashion Promotion as well as Graphic Design. With access to creative workshops and studios, UCA Epsom is likely to be especially attractive for business-minded students with a strong passion for the creative industries, but might not want to pursue a career as a full-time artist or creator. You can perhaps be a marketer with strong creative skills instead!
  • UCA Farnham – Located in the traditional craft town of Farnham, UCA Farnham is the largest campus in terms of student population and course portfolio! These include a range of craft-based courses such as Fine Art, Ceramics & Glass, Textile Design, Jewellery & Silversmithing and more. There are also a wide range of visual art courses like Film Production, Animation, Digital Media, Games Arts & Technology, Graphic Design, Illustration, Interior Architecture, as well as Music Composition & Technology and an Acting course designed for the screen. Such wide range of courses is also why UCA Farnham is where the International Art Foundation is based – to allow students to get a taste of the widest range of specialisms!
  • UCA Rochester – Perched high on a hill and with a stunning view of river Medway, UCA Rochester is the fashion campus of UCA. Course options include Fashion Design, as well as specialist courses like Fashion Textiles which has a strong focus on modern techniques, and Fashion Atelier which requires exceptional tailoring skills. Apart from design courses, there is a full range of fashion-related courses such as Fashion Image & Styling, Fashion Photography and Make-up & Hair.

Granted full university status in 2008, University for the Creative Arts (UCA) was formed with a merger between a few historical art schools with over 160 years of teaching experience. Over the years UCA graduates have worked in different sectors of the creative industries and have achieved international acclaim. They include a number of Oscar-winning animators, film director Gareth Edwards (director of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Godzilla), illustrator Martin Handford (creator of Where’s Wally?), animation artist Mark Baker (creator of Peppa Pig), jewellery designer Stephen Webster, as well as fashion designer Karen Millen.
