澳洲留學-申請藝術設計課程-設計作品集為您大大加分

澳洲留學-運用您的設計作品集

申請適合學校課程

Your design portfolio: how to use your portfolio before you apply


Portfolios are important in several professions, and a wide range of students also keep one. As well as showing off your best work, taking a critical look at your portfolio can help you make important decisions. On our blog we’ll look at how that might work for a Design student about to enter a Fashion program.

設計是重要的專業,您的傑出作品可以幫您作出重要的決定,本文將介紹學習時尚專業的學生如何進入一個適合的學習課程。

 

 

Your portfolio – your work – your process

設計作品集將引導成功之路

A portfolio – or folio – is a rich resource when used well. Your portfolio of work will showcase what you do, whether you are about to apply to university, apply for a job or meet potential business clients. Getting a folio of your work ready when you apply to study in Australia is also an essential way to prepare yourself.

您的設計作品集或手稿呈現您先前學習所打下的基礎,無論日後申請大學或工作、甚至滿足潛在商業客戶都是相當有用的。若您想要申請澳洲大學,那麼可以開始準備您的作品設計集手稿。

 

 

What is a portfolio?

設計作品集

A portfolio is a way to present visual documentation of ideas you have or work you have done. Much like a CV/resume, students and professionals choose to show different things in their folios depending on each situation and the specific results they want.

一個設計作品集呈現出您個人的經驗與想法,就拿履歷表來說,學生與專業人士的履歷表必定根據各人情況與專業程度而有呈現不同內容。

 

Who keeps a portfolio?

 

Anyone who does work that can be presented visually can have a portfolio… so that’s a wide range of professionals and students! Do you want to work as a Product Designer? Your folio of design work will probably include technical drawings plus information on how your objects can be constructed. Advertising and Marketing professionals bring portfolios of work to meetings with their clients. Or perhaps you’re a Graphic Artist who loves the Batman illustrations that made DC Comics famous? If so, your folio will present how you illustrate different scenes and characters with a developing narrative; a Film Maker will do the same with a portfolio of their story-boards. So you don’t have to be an artist to keep a portfolio, but if you work visually then you are more likely to use your portfolio regularly.

任何人都可以設計自己的作品,所以這是一門擁有廣大且專業的領域。您想嘗試產品設計相關領域的工作嗎?或許您喜歡”蝙蝠俠”著名漫畫插圖,但是畫此漫畫的是為圖形藝術家嗎?若事實如此,您的設計將如何呈現?其實您不必是位藝術家,但卻因工作需求持續的設計不同作品。

 

We have been talking about Fashion Design courses in Australia, so let’s take that as our example…

接著跟您介紹澳洲時尚設計課程相關資訊

What could go in my fashion portfolio?

設計中可加入那些元素?

This depends. For example, Fashion Designers without a lot of work experience might include ‘mood boards’ to focus on the look they want to create. Mood boards could include colours and fabrics, style and influences. Designers often create mood boards using images they find and cut-out from magazines.

Or your portfolio might present your own original drawings, showcasing your flat sketches of original clothing designs and helping your viewer understand how each design should be worn. Do you have the knowledge to go even further? Your folio could present more technical drawings, indicating how your garments can be constructed, showing detail about types of stitching to use.

And if you helped create a runway show, your portfolio could offer a collection of photographs from any fashion shows you have been closely involved in, whether you were a designer, a production assistant, or you had another kind of involvement.

其實視情況而定,例如有些服裝設計師缺乏工作經驗,於是創造”情緒版”,”情緒版”可能包含顏色、面料材質、風格和影響力等,創造靈感有些來自於雜誌的圖像等。

您的設計作品集可能是您的設計手稿,展示您原創服裝設計的平面草圖,幫助眾人了解每個設計細節。若您有足夠的知識想法,您的草圖還可運用更多相關技術來介紹您的設計。

若您協助舉辦服裝秀,無論您是設計師或是助理,您的設計作品也可以一同展現在該服裝秀的攝影作品照片中。

 

Do I need a portfolio?

For some programs the answer is yes, you will need a portfolio. Many other courses don’t ask to see your portfolio before you start. Some of our clients find this surprising!

我需要有我自己的設計作品集嗎?這是當然的,有些學校申請課程時或許不需要,但是有些學校則是喜歡事先了解您的作品有哪些。

 

Isn’t it important to show a university my work before I start a course?

You might think so! But it isn’t always possible – international students living a long way from Australia would find that very difficult. When universities don’t ask to see your portfolio, your written personal statement will be even more important, deciding whether or not you are offered a place on the course.

For more advice on that, come see us at YEC!

在課程開始之前先讓大學了解我的設計作品重要嗎?

您可能如此認為,但非絕對,在澳洲求學的國際學生非常辛苦,就算學校並未要求先了解您的作品集,但是個人書面資料陳述將決定您是否獲准進入此課程。

 

So why isn’t it always necessary to show a portfolio?

The answer reflects the many different kinds of people you’ll meet in one of Australia’s large and vibrant Fashion Schools.

為什麼不一定要展示我的作品集呢?

因為澳洲的時尚設計學校相當多元,所以答案與您所選的不同大學而有所差異。

 

Fashion courses typically have different entry points. The different pre-requisites for entry reflect the diverse kinds of work, the varied skill-sets you need to succeed in the profession, and the many different ways you can specialise within the fashion industry later on. Keep in mind that candidates for Fashion-related courses can have quite different backgrounds, entering fashion study with different kinds of experience. Also, the industries linked to fashion are enormously diverse and students might intend to specialise in one area after they graduate. For these reasons people qualify in different ways to study within a School of Fashion and Textiles. This may also be the case for you!

時尚課程通常有不同的切入點,不同種類的工作與技能其先決條件也不同,想要成功在時尚界立足,有許多不同方式。但須了解,研究時尚相關課程的學生有不同的背景經驗。為了時尚產業未來就業考量,您在學校將學習不同專業領域,像是服裝或者紡織等。

 

How about when I arrive in Australia – should I show my work then?

當我抵達澳洲時我該展是我的作品嗎?

Presenting your work when you arrive will certainly help your tutors to understand what kind of work you do and how accomplished you are. Being ready for this can help you feel confident and more fully understood, particularly when images can explain your creative work better than words – however good your English may be!

In this blog, we are also saying that just by reviewing your portfolio in the right way you can make the process of choosing a course much easier, benefitting you now and later.

展示作品可讓您的導師了解你下了甚麼功夫,做好準備可以讓自己更有自信,您必須有足夠英語能力解釋您的創作。

在本篇文章中,我們談及重新了解自己的作品集,可以幫助您更快速簡單的選擇適合的課程。

 

So how can I use my portfolio?

我該如何使用我的作品集?

Here’s our advice. Begin by paying attention to the detail when you examine specific requirements for entry to different courses. If you need to demonstrate your ability in a portfolio, treat this as an opportunity to shine. You must show your work plus your presentation skills at their very best. Present clean and well-organised work, selected to display your creative and technical skills in the best possible light. Do focus on your strengths but if possible, think about how your portfolio will demonstrate you have what it takes to tackle a variety of different challenges. Choose work your have done for a range of design briefs and different styles so that your ability comes forward in the broadest way.

 

首先要確認你所學習的課程,若需要證明,則您的作品集是展示自己的好機會,當然還有您的演講解說能力。簡潔與良好的組織概念作品,專注於自己的長處加以發揮,您的作品集幫助您解決各種不同挑戰。事先的準備工作讓您可以盡情發揮您具有的獨特能力與風格。

 

 

…Sounds complicated!

This is a careful process, but you get a really great sense of satisfaction when it’s done!

聽起來複雜,卻是一個謹慎的過程,完成之後將獲得巨大的滿足感。

 

Should I still prepare a portfolio if the college doesn’t ask to see one?

Well, this is the crucial question, because everyone can benefit from the process of deciding how best to show their work. And organising portfolios can help you make some important decisions about which design course to choose.

若大學沒有要求,那我應該準備作品集嗎?

其實這是個重要問題,製作作品集的過程中對自己是有許多加分之處,決定如何組織與展示自己的作品,將幫助您找到適合的課程。

 

 

Explain!

 

First of all, the process sharpens your awareness of what truly interests you. When you reflect on your finished and unfinished work, it becomes easier to see what most stimulates your creativity and imagination. Your strengths and weaknesses are clearer – areas where your skills are more and less developed. But you also feel where those sparks of interest lie, in areas that could be developed even if at present you lack what you need. Where do you want to take your work in future?

So it is a revealing and positive step towards clearer study and career goals, whether you are compiling a portfolio for the first time or critically reviewing a finished collection of your professional work.

Now push the exercise even further. Can you bring your portfolio into touch with your future studies in Fashion?

首先,過程中將磨練您是否真的有興趣,當您思考完成或未完成設計中刺激您的想像力與創造力。你的長處和短出將更清晰可見,有助於未來學習方向與工作方向。

這是積極的第一步,可清晰的了解學習與職業目標。

更進一步討論您的作品集是否觸及未來時尚相關研究?

 

 

So how can I relate my own work and ambitions to the study options in Australia?

 

For each university that offers a course in your field, study the detailed course information very carefully. Ask yourself how your experience connects with what the college plans to teach you on their specially-designed and resourced program. Look at the core courses (the ones you have to do) and electives (courses you can choose). Breaking each course into separate elements, you have the perfect opportunity to assess college facilities, the specific expertise of teaching staff, plus opportunities to get industry experience that’ll benefit you even after your course is complete.

And make a sketch of your study pathway through the whole degree – do that even if you’re not ready to make final choices just yet.

我如何能在澳洲選擇自己的工作與抱負?

每所大學提供的課程,依不同領域做詳細研究。檢視自己如何銜接學校計畫與專門設計資源程序,您可以選擇核心課程與選修課程,學習多元化,您可以評估學校設施與教學人員的專業知識,若加上工作實習經驗,將有助於您的學習課程是完整無缺的。

 

Actually, it feels too early to decide!

Even at this stage, some decisions are necessary – you just want to make sure they are informed decisions, not guesswork. And don’t refer to university rankings as your only guide. This is too general (and lazy!) and you can easily miss out on opportunities that suit you best as an individual.

When you focus on your own work, and examine course components in detail, you will be able to sense links between your work and what is on offer. And when a program connects strongly with your work, being conscious of what your own priorities are will help both your application and your success on the program… but this could also help match courses to your priorities, helping identify the specific courses of study that would really suit you.

If there is no connection with fashion work you have done so far, consider how strongly you feel about a type of study that will lead you in new directions. Ask yourself: how specialised have you already become in your fashion career?

即使在此階段,有些決定是需要確保決定明確而非猜測。若大學排名是您唯一的思考項目,那麼您將錯失適合自己的好機會。

當您專注於本身研究工作,將能感受到研究過程中所獲得的回饋。當課程與您的研究有關係時,將有助於您的研究計畫程序,確定哪些是適合您學習的課程。若您對時尚產業尚無接觸,思考看看如何讓您在時尚產業中立足。

那些人會考慮在澳洲讀時尚?

Your ambition could be to start your own fashion Fashion & Textiles business.

Or your goal might be working at a large, established fashion label.

It could be that you have a strategy to improve your professional profile and employability within the Fashion industry, getting what you need from a Masters degree. You want to show you have the kind of practical and theoretical knowledge that adds value to a company.

你可能懷抱著在時尚界創業的夢想,或者想要為知名品牌工作。也許你是計畫藉由取得碩士學位增進專業能力、加強求職履歷,證明自己在實作及理論兩方面都能為公司帶來成果。

 

The Fashion industry plus the industries that link to Fashion exist in a creative and business environment characterised by rapid change, so the Fashion world needs well-trained individuals with an enormous range of different skills. Universities face the challenge of nurturing each student’s creative ability while also enabling them to skill-up in business. This means as well as their craft, Fashion graduates know about merchandising and distribution, about the management and sustainability of supply chains – and plenty more that artists in other fields never need to consider. Universities must also provide industry-standard facilities, and teaching staff with impressive resumes full of industry experience.

時尚設計是變化快速、講求創意的商業領域,需要大量技能廣泛的專業人力。這門領域的師資面臨的挑戰是: 他們必須同時訓練學生的創意發揮及商務應用能力。除了時尚專業之外,這門科系的畢業學生也會了解商品行銷及物流作業、供應鏈管理、還有其他許多藝術科系學生通常不會接觸到的領域。而針對時尚科系,各家學校則必須提供業界等級的設備、擁有豐富業界工作背景的師資。

 

Among the best universities meeting that training challenge are the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology University (RMIT), and Queensland University of Technology. First we’re going to have a quick look at QUT in Brisbane – a great destination for undergraduate study in Fashion – and we’ll answer some important questions about choosing to enter university first if you have your eye on a job in this most vibrant and competitive of the creative industries.

Queensland University of Technology: Bachelor of Fine Art (Fashion)

QUT 美術學士(時尚)

So you’re thinking about undergraduate training in Fashion…

Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane runs the Bachelors in Fine Art (Fashion) degree (or BFA for short). It’s an intensive course designed by QUT to build your creativity, to keep your individuality at the fore, and develop your awareness of the industries connected to Fashion.

位於布里斯本的昆士蘭科技大學提供時尚主修美術學士課程(簡稱BFA)。這門密集訓練課程專為建立學生的創造力及個人風格而設,同時也培養學生對時尚產業的基礎認知。

 

What’s different about this course – and what’s special about the study culture at QUT?

這門課程或QUT的學習環境有什麼特別之處?

 

First, BFA tutors tell us they emphasise certain things to create the right kind of study culture. For example, you are encouraged to take risks with your work and tutors stress that they don’t teach Design in terms of right and wrong. Instead, your own unique style – your individual identity – is respected and encouraged.

BFA的老師告訴我們,BFA的師資群十分重視如何創造良好的學習文化。他們鼓勵學生冒險,並且在教授設計課程領導學生跳脫對錯的框架。學生的個人風格、自我特質才是最重要的。

http://www.qut.edu.au

As we said, the course is intensive but the setting for the Bachelors in Fine Art (Fashion) is relaxed, supportive and friendly. Because the aim is for you to develop self-awareness about your own personal sense of style, QUT explains that you’ll always be encouraged to keep reflecting on your creative process. On campus you work in a studio environment – a large open study space with lots of activity and creative energy. This helps you not only to think about your ideas and working methods as an individual – you also engage regularly in group discussions, shared with the whole study group.

為了讓學生培養自我意識、創造出獨特的個人風格,QUT鼓勵學生檢討、反思自己的創作過程。在開放式的大型工作室裡,學生以個人身分發展創作概念及實作步驟,同時也與整個班級進行團體討論。BFA課程雖然緊湊密集,但是也有輕鬆、友善的學習氣氛。

 

OK, now tell me how QUT will improve my fashion skills and technical know-how?

那麼請告訴我QUT如何訓練我的時尚技能及專業技術?

 

You will get going straight away – because right from the first semester you gain key skills. We mentioned the ‘Design Studio’ units – a series of six courses spread over the entire degree. In Semester 1 you begin by learning about the components, principles and processes of contemporary fashion design. You put your knowledge into action by tackling a design brief, together with your first training in fashion pattern-cutting. Then you’ll be using key sewing techniques to manufacture garments. In this way, you’re prepared for Semester 2 when you extend your knowledge into more complex pattern engineering, but also start devising production plans for your garments.

從第一個學期開始你就會接受專業技能訓練,例如同上面提到的工作室作業就是六門分配在整個學程中的系列課程。在第一個學期,你將會從學習關鍵元素、基本知識與近代時尚設計流程開始。接受過首次打版訓練後你必須應用所學提出一份設計大綱,接著運用裁縫技術製作成衣。第二學期將會延伸第一學期的基本訓練,帶你認識更複雜的剪裁工程,同時你也必須開始設計自己的服飾生產計劃。

 

Or you begin with ‘Drawing for Fashion’ in your first semester, starting by examining ways of generating fashion graphics both by hand and using digital technology – vital skills in presenting garments and showing how your fashion collections could evolve. You’ll look at how to show human figures and how to recreate a sense of different fabrics. Then, by your second year, you’ll be ready for a far more in-depth study of Computer Aided Design as it applies to the Fashion industry.

或者,在第一個學期會從「時尚繪畫」課程開始,教授以手繪及數位科技做時尚設計的方法,訓練你呈現自己的作品、展現出系列作品進一步發展的可能性。你會學到如何表現不同體型、繪製材質紋理。到了第二年,你更會深入認識電腦輔助設計如何應用到時尚產業。

 

As with many programs in Australia, the BFA in Fashion at QUT comprises core courses that you must do (like it or not!) and electives, which you can choose yourself. For a really close look at the Bachelor of Fine Art (Fashion), come and see us here at YEC.

如同許多澳洲其他課程,QUT的BFA將核心必修與選修課程結合。如果想要更仔細了解時尚主修美術學士課程,可以與YEC辦公室聯絡。

 

Will I learn enough about the business side? I want to start my own fashion retail business in the future.

我會學到足夠的商務知識嗎? 未來我想要在時尚界創業

 

Yes, the BFA (Fashion) program clearly sees the development of Fashion business acumen as a priority from start to finish.

是的,BFA課程絕對是將培養時尚產業敏銳度放在課程設計上的第一考量。

 

QUT offers several different ways to do your degree, including double degrees like the Bachelors in Business/Bachelors in Fine Art (Fashion). The degree produces creative graduates with sophisticated technical skills in fashion, as well as highly developed knowledge in business.

QUT 提供數種攻讀學位的方式,包括像商務學士/ 時尚主修美術學士的雙學士課程。此學位讓畢業學生同時具備高階時尚專業技術與商務技能。

 

The BFA in Fashion at QUT – theory and practical study together

Is the BFA mostly a practical fashion course? What else do you study?

BFA都是實務操作的課程嗎? 你還可以學到什麼?

 

QUT explain that design work you do within the department is at the heart of your training. But as well as your practical work, and the pieces you create in course units like ‘Design Studio’, you complete core modules in the history and theory surrounding fashion. These studies help develop your understanding of market forces and of how developments worldwide have come to influence the textile and garment design industries. So you might think, for example, about the growth of ethical fashion and textiles business during the past fifty years. Certainly, you must learn how garments are constructed but you also need a good understanding of issues such as ensuring that goods are produced ethically.

QUT強調學生在自己系所的時尚設計作業將是學習核心,但除了設計工作室課程的作業之外,也有將焦點放在時尚歷史發展及理論的核心課程。你可能會認為這些課程就是關於時尚及材質產業在近五十年的發展,但除此之外你也會學到如何確保商品的生產過程符合職業倫理等等議題。

 

But I’m much more interested in the practical side than I am in the theory surrounding fashion – I really want to focus on designing clothes.

比起理論我還是對實務操作比較有興趣 – 我想要專心設計服飾

http://www.qut.edu.au

You are not alone! The majority of undergraduates want practical experience most of all. But remember that you cannot be quite so selective at this stage: a Bachelors degree has to be comprehensive, covering practice and theory. This is true wherever you study – it’s one thing that distinguishes vocational study from what you need to do at university.

你並不孤單! 多數本科系學生都想要專注在實務操作。但是記住: 在這個階段你還不能對課程太挑剔,本科系課程必須廣泛涉及實務及理論兩方。這點在各個科系都相同,也是區分職訓與大學課程的特點之一。

 

How does a theory side support me and help me become a great practitioner?

理論層面如何幫助我成為優良設計師呢?

First, keep in mind that the less practical side of your course can inform your creative work, taking your designs in directions you might not otherwise have found. It’s this kind of learning experience that can set university study apart.

不屬於實務作業的課程會是你的創意來源,也許能將你的設計作品帶往全新的方向。從學生在理論課程方面的學習經驗更是可以看出一間大學的特色。

 

When you focus on history of fashion it will challenge you to think what has already influenced your eye and imagination. Making the connection between the global spread of trading empires, and the sudden availability of new fabrics or dyes from around the world, you could see how traditions from Asian culture became stylistic influences on key moments in European fashion history.

當你研究時尚的發展史時,你將會反思自己是如何接收時代潮流的影響。從貿易大國的國際拓展進程到全世界的新材質或染料資源,你可以看到亞洲文化是如何對歐洲時尚發展造成風格上的影響。

 

A course at QUT like ‘Unspeakable Beauty 1: A History of Dress and Fashion’ asks you to examine how fashion developed as a medium linked to social class, and to notions of gender that may seem incredible today.

QUT的課程如「不可言說的美 1: 洋裝與時尚發展史」將會帶你重新檢視時尚與社會階層的連結,以及在今日看來令人感到不可思議的性別概念。

 

How does QUT see the interaction of theory and practice?

QUT如何看待實務與理論間的關係?

 

They echo what we’ve said above in that the historical and conceptual side encourages you to see your own practical creative work in a wider context, and they say this occurs in ways that are easy to link with today’s real-world of fashion.

QUT同上述所說,認同歷史及概念層面的研究幫助學生在發展實務作業時擁有更深入的背景知識。QUT也表示這會幫助學生進一步接觸當今的時尚世界。

 

QUT say that this is in itself a form of business knowledge because after all, if you possess a thorough knowledge of fashion precedents (styles from years gone by), you may become great at recognising not only where new designs have come from, but also at sensing how trends could develop in the future – that’s an essential skill if you want to run your own fashion retail business, or to work in fashion merchandising in the future.

QUT表示,理論層面的功課也是一種商務知識。深入了解歷代時尚潮流典範除了能讓你學會辨認新的產品設計從何發展之外,也能使你擁有預測未來潮流的能力—無論想要開創自己的時尚品牌或銷售時尚產品,這門技能都是必須的。

 

This comprehensive mix of practice and theory lets you become a more rounded professional in your chosen industry. It can give you a competitive edge later on.

理論與實作的綜合應用將會讓你在業界成為更全面的專業人士,也能增加你的個人競爭力。

追求創意與想像力 到澳洲學習”藝術相關”課程吧

Courses in Design and the Arts are precious if you want to develop as a creative person or professional.

設計與藝術課程是一門珍貴的學習,特別是當你想發展個人的創造能力。

What’s more, by studying Design or the creative industries in Australia, you might set yourself up for a career that gives plenty of space for your imagination to work.

還有,在澳洲學習設計或創意產業,透過你的想像力發展未來工作,你將為自己的職業生涯提供了足夠的發揮空間。

This could be your first move towards a career that’s rich in opportunities to use your creativity, setting you up for the kind of job that gives your imagination space to work. A course in art and design can be transformative, giving you the chance to become a more creative and original thinker who can lend their resourceful mind and critical eye to work and to life.

這可能是你追求運用創意及想像力的工作時踏出的第一步,你將藉此準備進入一個能發揮想像力的職場空間。藝術設計課程可以改變你很多,你也許有機會因此成為更具原創力和批判思考能力的人,培養出多產的頭腦和精準的眼光。

 

The career route which you eventually choose is not something easily predictable because art and design encompasses such a broad range of study focuses. Course subjects spread out from the fundamentals of design – where you could study furniture design, or electronic media, digital animation or interactivity – to the traditional territory of fine art painting, sculpture or performance art. Or your direction could just as easily be the theory and history of the field, which could lead you towards a career curating shows in galleries or museums.

未來你所選擇的職業道路現在還很難看出端倪,因為藝術設計類別的課程包含了很大範圍的主題,你可以選擇研究家具設計、電子媒體、數位動畫,或者從傳統美術繪畫到現代美術、雕塑、表演藝術等等的各種領域。或者你也可以立志研究藝術領域的理論及歷史,準備在未來於畫廊或美術館負責策展工作。

 

Expect to choose one of three main areas when selecting your course. Fine art will cover those disciplines of painting or sculpture, photography or art installation. Visual communications will cover areas like graphic design and illustration, including the use of software. Often falling under the applied arts will be practises such as fashion, the design of jewellery, or interior design and furniture. But even after your selection, the channels for you to develop your work into other areas will usually remain open, allowing you to dip into areas of design practise that could extend your main focus or specialism.

這個類別的課程大致可分為三個方向: 現代美術將會包含繪畫或雕塑、攝影或裝置藝術。視覺傳播則包括圖像設計、插畫,並包含電腦軟體應用。而時常被歸類為工藝類別的課程則有時尚設計、珠寶設計、室內設計與家具。即使在你決定往某一方向發展後,你仍然有機會往其他的領域發展,擴展應用你本身專業的可能性。

 

So you can expect a certain amount of flexibility once you start to work. Art and design courses are hands-on in that they give students an opportunity to focus on creating and developing. Lending support to this process, teaching staff at university level are often working artists who can help you to follow up on your creative impulses, helping you bring your creations to fruition.

在你開始工作後將會擁有一定的彈性。藝術與設計類的課程將焦點放在實作經驗上,讓學生能夠專注於創作及發展。大學的師資通常都是由活動中的藝術家擔任,幫助你開發創作動力、生產成果。

 

Getting onto an art and design undergraduate program will sometimes (but not always) require a foundation or diploma year. After a foundation course your basic skills and main areas of special interest are likely to be more established – and evident to university providing the course you want – so even students who apply without a foundation can take this as a rough guide about the standards a university will expect them to meet.

進入藝術與設計類的大學學程通常(但不一定)必須先修一年的基礎課程。在一年的基礎訓練之後,你的技術將更熟練,同時也能更確定自己的志向為何、並向遞交申請的大學證明。所以即使是沒有先修基礎課程的申請學生也能以這些課程為基準,衡量大學對新生的能力要求為何。

 

When it comes to selecting a university, location can be very important. For their effect on your study experience, you cannot put a price on the city’s art galleries, museums, and cultural life in general. And of course, you must look very closely at the facilities which each art and design department makes accessible to its students. Will studio space and equipment be there for you when you need it, and do you think there will be enough room for your work to develop in new directions?

選擇一所大學時,地點是很重要的因素。你不能低估城市中的藝廊、美術館、文化環境對你的影響。當然你也該仔細調查系上提供的設施規模,例如有沒有足夠的工作室環境及設備,以及你是否有機會跨領域發展?

 

To follow up your interest in a study program, focus carefully on the different course components – and remember that programs with identical names often exist at several universities, but what you actually study can vary greatly. To be even clearer about your decision, find out exactly who will teach your course. What are their special areas of interest? You may well discover an established designer or artist will be tutoring you, and their reputation could support you in future. The same goes for the reputation of the school itself, not only because of its international standing – some schools have close links with contemporary artists and the galleries that promote their work. It’s a kind of network that could help you survive as a practising artist in your future.

仔細研究每個課程,絕不要假設每所學校的課程內容都會一樣。同時你也要調查師資──你有機會在世界知名的藝術家或設計師門下學習。有些老師可能在藝術界享有很高的聲譽──這也許會在你開啟職業藝術家生涯時助你一臂之力。

 

Will your degree allow you to make a living from art? That’s impossible to promise, yet there is no doubt you’ll learn a very broad range of skills, useful in an equally broad array of design and media contexts. Graduates also take on work in arts management, take positions in museums or galleries, or they embark on careers in art therapy.

沒有人能保證你在畢業後可以成為職業藝術家,但你可以學到各種可已在設計或媒體公司內廣泛運用的技能。你也可以走向藝術管理,為美術館或藝廊工作,或者成為藝術治療師。

 

If you’re thinking of a course that is more directly related to a target vocation, such as Architectural Technology, then your priority will be to make sure the course contains the vocational elements you need, allowing you to get professional qualifications.

如果想要修更多職業導向課程,例如策展企劃,師資將不如課程內容中是否包含職訓來得重要,職訓會幫助你取得合適的專業認證。
