I’m afraid we are not inviting you to a day at the races, rather a lunchtime meeting at the University for the Creative Arts.
On 27 and 28 October we will be seeking to validate six new degrees. We have already announced our plans for degrees in Music and Moving Image and will also seeking validation for degrees in Fine Art, Drawing, Illustration and Graphic Design. This means far more choice for OCA students.
The validation process is largely based on the documentation which we have developed to describe each degree pathway, but the reviewers also would like to talk to some OCA students over lunch. This is a very informal event and students who have attended previously have found it interesting.
We need volunteers who have studied or are studying drawing, painting, printmaking or sculpture for 27 October and students who have studied any Visual Communications course, music or the Digital Film Production: Creative Concepts course for 28 October. The meetings will last about an hour and volunteers should be reassured, they are not being examined, the reviewers are just interested in their experience of studying with the OCA.
We can pay travel expenses for students based in the UK, to volunteer please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We will release details of the new degree pathways shortly after the validation meetings.
