What are you looking for in a design school/education?
Sorry, I haven’t answered this…I must’ve passed by
first of all, I guess, the reason I chose Product design is because Its the art form that best describes my philosophy, or my view of ideal art, which is,simply said, art that can be appreciated by anyone and everyone at an emotional level, without necessarily getting into deep meaning kind of shit.
Although I have started out with fine art, and I have respect for it, it is not what truly drives me
I guess what I want most out of a design school/education is
-ability to guide me in the right direction for the real world
-many internships, preferably with big(as in famous) companies or firms
I picked northumbira because…
first, to get out of my comfort zone and to get new experience in a different country.
second, european art schools had a higher average student work level than the US(In my viewpoint…)
Third, Many of the best design companies are located in Europe, and I figured experience in Europe would distinguish me from many of the students who have US art school experience.(of course im not entirely relying on it)
fourth, this may seem silly, but among the many notable alumni northumbria has, the fact that Jonathan Ive graduated from northumbria, worked as a positive magnet for me. I cant help it, this is just a minor thing…Im sure you understand.
Fifth, Im hoping the living cost will be lower than staying in London.
Speaking of costs, I cant figure out how much I would end up paying for a year if I attend Northumbria as an international student…bit confusing just reading all the numbers on the website. can you give me an estimate?
Thank you for your help…
