In collaboration with the Southern Universities Network this activity aims to encourage those students who can benefit most from what we have to offer, whatever their background, to apply to further and higher arts education.
This five-day activity is designed to give students in Year 10, 11 & 12 a taster of studying their chosen subject at further or higher education level. These sessions will allow them to develop specialist learning, team building, problem-solving and communication skills. Students can choose from these subjects:
Please note, our staff will be responsible for welfare and safety of all students during the activity. There will also be an education visit to a London studio/gallery.
This activity will take place on 09, 10, 11, 12 and 13 July 2018 from 9:00am – 3:30pm. Students will need to commit for the whole five-day duration enabling sufficient time to complete their projects.
There will be a 45 minute break for lunch on campus at noon.
Gold AIM Summer School takes place on our campus located at Wallisdown on the border between Bournemouth and Poole. The campus offers a series of modern, purpose built studios, workrooms and teaching areas.
The workshops and studios are well equipped to the latest in industry standards and the university offers an enviable provision of specialist computer equipment.
HOW DO STUDENTS APPLY?
Student guides for the Gold AIM Summer School will be sent to designated schools. Teachers are asked to invite those who you feel could benefit.
We encourage the person with parental responsibility for your student (parents/guardians/carers) to read the student guide and then complete the online application form with the learner here.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER STUDENTS HAVE APPLIED?
Once all applications have been received, we will let students know whether they have a place or not via communication with their school and then later confirmed by email or letter.
WHAT ARE THE CHANCES OF GETTING A PLACE ON THE Gold Aim SCHOOL?
Places are limited so please be aware that applying for this summer school does not guarantee anyone a place. Where possible, we try to allocate places for those who have a creative passion.
Teachers will also be told if students are on the reserve list and we will contact schools if a place becomes available.
