In the Focus phase of the Foundation Course, students hone their artistic and practical skills in a subject area of their choice. The optional modules available here mirror those in the bachelor degree programme: Animation, Video, Camera Arts, Digital Ideation, Graphic Design, Illustration, Art & Art Education, Objekt Design, Textile Design, XS Jewellery, and Interior Design. Prompted by set themes or tasks, students research, design, and accomplish projects related to the professional field they aspire to work in. Experts are on hand with support and advice, also regarding how best to prepare a portfolio and make a successful application for a bachelor degree programme.
The Focus phase follows on the Basics and Orientation phases, and precedes the final phase, Advanced Practice.
