Preparatory Year in Arts

Top Course Studies in Arts

Arts

A preparatory year is meant to prepare a student for the first year of higher education. The courses undertaken many times include languages and undergraduate-level courses that lay the groundwork for further learning.

What is a preparatory year in arts? It is a course of study that focuses on those subjects you need to understand for university entrance exams. For example, a preparatory year in artistic fields and architecture will include subjects such as art and art history for future artists, and courses in geometry and technical drawing for future architects. A large range of courses are available in media studies, the humanities, and artistic fields. Core modules such as English and Skills for University Study 1 and 2 help with basic English communication skills.

The benefits of this course of study are many. You will have greater communication skills and be better prepared for future, advanced study. With more education comes greater opportunities for higher pay.

Costs vary significantly among different schools that offer the same degree. It’s wise to research the options and understand all fees and tuition costs before applying.

The careers available to students who start university studies in the arts are numerous, and include both creative and technical career paths. For example, a student who chooses media studies can work as a professional journalist or eventually as a professor of media studies or communications. Journalists interview key figures pertinent to major issues and report facts to the public. Digital media, photography and video might eventually play an important role in this career. An artist or architect would work with clients to determine an appropriate design for commissioned work and create renderings and a final design.

International options exist for students interested in the arts. Online courses are a great way to decide if a program is right for you. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
