Visual and Digital Arts run virtual taster days
The Visual and Digital Arts department has launched its first online taster session for students starting in September.
The meet and greet sessions allow students to gain insight into the course, meet tutors and ask questions.
30 students attended the first ‘Graphics’ taster, via Google Meet, which involved tutors discussing course content, enrolment and induction processes, safety measures and technical learning elements.
Kevin O’Hare, Head of Visual and Digital Arts, said: “These taster sessions allow students to feel thoroughly prepared for starting college in September. We’re dedicated to ensuring students have a good understanding of the course before joining, allowing them to engage with us and ask questions.
“We’ve had some fantastic feedback from our first session, with students commenting on how it’s helped them make the informed decision to join college and understand the different aspects of the course. It was great to discuss the benefits of vocational learning at college, such as the use of exciting digital software and our new facilities at Quarry Hill Campus.”
There are five additional sessions planned over the coming months for students joining in September across Art and Design, Photography, Computer Games, Textiles and Animation and Visual Effects.
