Unique Advantage of Specialist Art School:
Cross-Discipline Collaboration

One of the unique advantages of study within a specialist art, design, media and performance institution is the cross course collaboration, which takes place across different courses of study. For example, acting students are selected to act in films produced by film students and may be supported by the costume course for costumes, make-up students for make-up and the modelmaking course for props.

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.

How to become a Lawyer in Hong Kong and in the UK? An Admissions Talk for Postgraduate Courses in Law by University of Law

Type: Virtual Seminar
Target: HKDSE, GCE A-levels Graduates, University Students and Working Adults
Location: British United / Join from Home

In the Seminar, admissions representative from the University of Law will introduce their postgraduate courses in law, in order to help students and parents understand how students can qualify as a lawyer in Hong Kong and the United Kingdom, and explain how different courses may be better for students in different career stages.

  • An overview of postgraduate courses in Law:

    Admission representative from the University of Law will provide details about the following postgraduate courses, covering areas such as course structure, entry requirements, tuition fees, study locations and the steps it takes after the course to qualify as a lawyer.

    • Yes – it’s possible for a non-law degree graduate to become a lawyer! Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) and Master of Arts in Law (MA Law)
      Tailored for graduates with a non-law degree, the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) covers essential core modules in law, enabling non-law graduates to pursue professional qualifications to qualify as a lawyer. After the GDL, graduates can follow the British training route and progress onto a Legal Practice Course (LPC) or a Bar Practice Course (BPC), and register as a UK lawyer after completing a training contract with a law firm; if they’d like to follow Hong Kong’s training route, graduates can do so as they will be eligible to apply to the PCLL after passing PCLL Conversion Exams.
    • Are you a law degree graduate, looking to train as a lawyer in the UK? Legal Practice Course (LPC) and Bar Practice Course (BPC)

      The UK’s equivalent to the PCLL in Hong Kong, LPC and BPC are the essential postgraduate training courses for UK’s solicitors and barristers respectively. After the LPC and BPC, graduates have to complete a training contract with a law firm, before they can register as a UK lawyer. How can students increase their chances in securing a training contract? Can students undertake their training contract in Hong Kong? Admissions representative from the University of Law will answer these and other frequently asked questions in the talk!

  • Why will the new Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) affect prospective students?
    Under new regulations (to be implemented in September 2021), students who would like to become a Solicitor in the UK will have to pass the brand new Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) (respective but smaller changes to the training route for Barristers were introduced in 2020). Students starting their law degrees will in theory be eligible for both new and existing training routes*, but it’s expected that the new route will become the most common practice in a few years’ time. In this section, the admissions representative will provide an overview of the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) and detail of the transitional arrangement.

    * The transitional arrangement is open to students who have completed, started or accepted an offer of a place on a specific law programme (LLB (Hons), GDL or MA Law)

  • Coming back to Hong Kong to practise: Can a UK lawyer practise law in Hong Kong?
    After a long and demanding journey to qualify as a UK lawyer, will students be able to practise as a lawyer in Hong Kong? What does it take to become a Hong Kong lawyer? Will the status as a UK lawyer offer advantages in a legal career in Hong Kong?
  • How does a Distance Learning course work? How much time per week does it usually require, for a working adult taking a part-time distance learning course?
    The GDL, LPC and LLB (Hons) in the University of Law all offer a distance learning mode of study (available as a full-time and part-time course). How does the arrangement work in practice, in terms of class delivery, learning resources, exams and assessment? How much time should a working adult taking a part-time course expect to devote to the their studies? Is there any extra support from the University for distance learning students?
  • Student story sharing: Becoming a lawyer is only one of many career outcomes!
    In the past, many students doing a postgraduate course with the University of Law (especially part-time students doing a distance learning course) aren’t really looking for a career change into the legal profession. Instead many find that good knowledge in law helps advance their career in other industries! In this section, admissions representative from the University of Law will share some of these student stories, to show that becoming a lawyer is only one of many career outcomes!

Social Sciences Virtual Seminar (University of Essex)

Social Sciences Virtual Seminar (University of Essex)

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

Content of Seminar

In the Seminar, Dr Alexandra Cox (Senior Lecturer from Department of Sociology) and an admissions representative from Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Essex will explain the advantages of studying Social Science subjects:

Dr Alexandra Cox

Senior Lecturer, Department of Sociology

  • Why study Sociology, Criminology, Politics & International Relations and other Social Science subjects?
  • FAQ: What’s Sociology? And what is the difference between Sociology and Social Sciences? What do Social Sciences usually cover? In terms of academic categorization, Sociology, Criminology, Politics & International Relations are usually put under the umbrella of Social Sciences, while some faculties of social sciences might also include Psychology, Economics, Media & Communication, Linguistics and more. What common teaching modules and theories do they share? As there are so many of them, at times students can find it difficult to distinguish between different Social Science subjects. Dr Alexandra Cox and the admissions representative will provide an overview of these social science subjects and highlight their academic focuses, in order to help students make a right choice!
  • What Practical Skills will Students Learn in Social Sciences? Apart from theories, Social Sciences programmes teach a lot of practical skills from research methods, interview, literature review, quantitative analysis and many more, which are often much more practical than many think they are! University of Essex is also one of the 17 Q-Step Centres for Quantitative Social Science Education in the UK, in which students can learn extra quantitative research skills (such as running large-scale polls, the use of statistical software such as SPSS, AMOSS and more) through elective modules. Using their own programmes as examples, Dr Alexandra Cox will explain what these skills are and how they can be applied to different industries and therefore enhance student’s graduate prospect.
  • Graduate Prospect: What do Social Science students do after graduation? Many things! Unlike professional degrees where there are well-defined career paths, social science students usually embark on unique career journeys, with some moving from one industry to another. Dr Alexandra Cox will share where their students usually go to work after graduation.
  • Undergraduate Programme Highlights: In this section, Dr Alexandra Cox will provide further details about the Sociology, Criminology, as well as the interdisciplinary BA (Hons) Social Sciences (jointly run by the Department of Sociology, Politics and Economics), covering course structures, placement and international exchange opportunities, entry requirements, etc.
  • Pathway Programme Highlights: In this last section, an admissions representative of University Foundation and International Year One of University of Essex will provide an overview of their pathway programmes, covering progression degree choices, entry requirements and other useful information. The representative will also explain how the promise of “Guaranteed Progression” works!

When choosing a school for children who are going to study in the UK at a really young age (often in early teenage), many parents would go for smaller schools that can provide a more personalized and intimate approach of care and education for their children. While sending their children to a prep school has its benefits, it often requires students to change school (therefore having to adapt to yet another change of environment), some parents therefore would go for small-scale boarding schools such as Moyles Court School, which provides both prep and senior year groups!

Currently there are about 200 students in Moyles Court School, which is located in the New Forest National Park in south of England and is only about 1.5 hours away from London Heathrow airport. The main building of Moyles Court School is a 16th century manor house, in peaceful and quiet rural area. Moyles Court School is a superb and affordable option for students require a caring and nurturing environment!

Moyles Court School is non-selective and willing to accept students who need the time and support to improve their study skills and academic results. On average, each pupil achieves one grade more than they would be expected to achieve, based on national benchmarking tests. Moyles Court School also offers a small number of scholarships, to encourage students with outstanding academic results. Students can opt for additional EFL classes in the form of additional English lessons that sit alongside their academic programmes of study (additional fees apply).

Location: British United / Join from Home
Scholarships for 2021/22: Up to 30% to 60% reduction on tuition fees for A-levels and up to £4,000 for University Foundation and International Year One.

When should you start preparing, if you’re aiming to apply for medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine and other medical-related programmes in the UK? If you’re applying for medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine through UCAS, not only that you have to have the right grades in the right subjects, you will also have to meet the much earlier deadline in October. If you’re applying for other medical-related subjects such as physiotherapy and occupational therapy, you’re highly recommended to make the first-round UCAS deadline in January.

In addition to good grades in public exams, most medical schools will also require one of the BMAT and UCAT examinations as part of their entry requirement. And it’s almost essential that you have a certain amount of relevant job shadowing or voluntary work experience. For medical-related subjects, while job shadowing and voluntary work experience isn’t essential, some experience will certainly enhance your chances! If you include all of these and the others, it’d normally take a year or two ahead for preparation, if not longer!

Details of the Seminar

In the Seminar, Thomas Peel Yates (Senior Tutor of Medical School Preparation programmes) from Bellerbys College will explain how you can best prepare for your application, covering things like UCAS deadlines, BMAT and UCAT examinations, the Personal Statement, the right combination of A-levels subjects as well as other job shadowing and voluntary work experience:

  • BMAT & UCAT: What are they testing you in these exams? When do they take place? Applicants should also be made aware that the majority of medical schools only accept one of these two exams as part of your qualifications. So you will have work out your university choices to find out whether it’s a better idea to sit both exams.
  • Preparing the Personal Statement: In this part, the Tutor will explain the basic requirement of a personal statement. He will also share a few tips to help students enrich their personal statement.
  • Multi-Mini Interviews (MMI), the New Interview Format of Medical School

Apart from these, the Tutor will also introduce the Medical School Preparation programmes tailor-made for aspiring medical school applicants. Alongside their GCE A-levels studies, eligible students will be allowed to take part in the following extra learning activities to enhance their chance of making a successful application:

Aviation Management Virtual Seminar (Virgin Atlantic & Coventry University)

Aviation Management Virtual Seminar (Virgin Atlantic & Coventry University)

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

Main theme

For the joy and unique experience of travel, graduates from many different disciplines do turn out joining the aviation and tourism industries. Why not study something relevant right from the start – like a specialist programme like Aviation Management?

In this seminar, Coventry University will join force with Virgin Atlantic to provide a deeper look into the Aviation industry and the subject of Aviation Management. And hopefully students will discover some good career options in an industry that they like!

Understanding the Aviation Industry

In the first part of the seminar, Virgin Atlantic will provide an overview of the Aviation industry from an industry point of view.

Sharing their organizational structure, routes and network, aircrafts and fleets, pricing and marketing strategies, Virgin Atlantic will show you how an airline company actually works. Not only will they talk about their passenger flights operation, they will also cover other less-talked-about facets of their operation such as cargo flights and other divisions.

How does an airline company design and develop their routes? Apart from passenger flights, what other services does an airline offer? In such a highly competitive industry, what does an airline do with pricing? Apart from pilots, cabin crew and ground staff, what people do airlines usually employ?

Speaker:

Basil Ling

Account Manager – Hong Kong and Southern China

Studying Aviation Management

In the second part, two academics from the Department of Aviation Management of Coventry University will expand the discussion from a more academic and marco perspective:

  • Other Players in the Aviation Industry: Regulators, airports, aircraft manufacturers, aircraft maintenance companies, as well as tourism development, catering & hospitality, travel agents and ticketing websites are all part of the Aviation industry. In academic terms, it’s an sophisticated industry that requires knowledge in Business, Engineering, Hospitality & Tourism and many other disciplines. So what areas will an Aviation Management programme cover?
  • What will you learn from a Aviation Management programme: Aviation Management is applied business degree tailormade for the Aviation industry. What specialist knowledge will the progammes cover? What common business knowledge will it cover too?
  • Graduate Prospect: Aviation Management graduates from Coventry University have worked in regulators (such as IATA), aviation consultancies, airports, airlines (such as Virgin Atlantic). What roles do these graduates take on? How do placement opportunities enhance their employability?
  • Programme Highlights: In this section, the academics will provide further details about the BSc (Hons) Aviation Management and MSc Air Transport Management, covering course structures, professional qualifications, facilities, placement opportunities, entry requirements, etc.
  • Graduates Sharing Session: Graduates of Coventry University who are now working in Virgin Atlantic will attend the seminar to share their study and work experience with students and parents!

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 322 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?
  • Tips on writing a winning personal statement.
  • English Requirements and Different Types of IELTS: What’s IELTS for UKVI (Academic)?
  • Options of university and academic disciplines in pathway programmes.
  • University Foundation Courses that accept applications from F.5 students.
  • The option of One-Year A-levels and a brief analysis of Non-Jupas admission data.

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!

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.
