Structure of the course
PART 1 - RESEARCH AND EXPLORATION
Students immersion in creative activities, during which they attend relevant and practical workshops, develop key practical skills such as drawing, generating ideas, researching and solving problems. Structural projects allow students to experience a broad spectrum of creative activities. Students are introduced to different disciplines and creative paths and develop clarity among the possible choices of future studies available to them.
PART 2 - CONSOLIDATION
Students choose a specific path - a specialty - and prepare to move on to British baccalaureate courses. Students should be more serious about learning the chosen creative path. They complete a specific creative project in which they develop essential technical and research skills as well as produce a high-quality portfolio of jobs that prepares them to successfully pursue British baccalaureate courses.
PART 3 - PROJECT
The students put into practice all the acquired learning, realizing a specific final project of their field of interest. With the help of the teachers in their area of interest, students are challenged to propose and conduct research as at the British baccalaureate level, resulting in a high quality project that will be publicly displayed at school. At the end of this stage, students develop a sophisticated understanding of their field of endeavor, perfect their ability to research, solve problems, plan, organize, analyze and practice as in undergraduate, making a successful transition to the British baccalaureate course of their choice.
