GSA Open Studio: Online Portfolio Workshop

Posted by heo

The programme will be suitable for students thinking of applying to any art school within the UK and not limited to those wanting to make an application to GSA.

It is a 2 week paid programme, aimed at students planning on making an application for a Fine Art, Design, or Architecture programme within the next two years (2021 and 2022 entry). The initial drive behind putting this together is our awareness of how measures taken to address the COVID-19 pandemic may have impacted on the student’s ability build their portfolio of work. However, it is also suitable for students that have not had their school contact time affected.

It is designed to offer projects, with one on one tutor feedback, that will enable them to expand their existing breadth of work in their portfolio and to take away skills that will help them further develop their own independent leaning tools when building their portfolio going forward. Full details, and how to book, are in the link below:

GSA Open Studio: Online Portfolio Workshop

It begins on Saturday 5th December and deadline for registering will be Monday 30th November. We only have 30 places available and these will be on a first come first served basis so I would advise students interested to register as soon as possible. However, booking has only just gone live so at the time of this email so all 30 places are currently available – but this will soon change!

VSA-Oxford Summer Program (Online) August 2020

Posted by heo

https://sites.google.com/vsa.edu.hk/vsa-summer-school-2020/home

Welcome to VSA Summer School!

Based in Hong Kong, the VSA Summer School is an academic, activity-based program which embraces IB teaching practices to develop students holistically. The program is managed by Victoria Shanghai Academy (VSA), an IB through train school which has over 1,800 students (www.vsa.edu.hk).

Experiencing an Oxford Education ONLINE

We heard you, you got it! Due to COVID-19, the face to face VSA-Oxford program in Hong Kong was cancelled which was a major disappointment for all parties. After reviewing the nature of online learning and speaking with the academics, we are pleased to announce that four academics from the University of Oxford will be providing the same high quality introductory university level courses online. All of the instructors have received their doctorates or medical degrees from the University of Oxford and have formal full-time teaching research and teaching responsibilities in the university.

The courses will be delivered by Google Meet or Zoom and maybe accompanied with other online tools to mimic the face to face teaching experience as closely as possible.

Dates and Times:

Session 1: Monday 10 August 2020 – Friday 14 August 2020 (4 courses)

Session 2: Monday 17 August 2020 – Friday 21 August 2020 (1 course)

The courses will be delivered from 1700-1900 (Hong Kong Local Time). In order to provide greater flexibility, students who miss ONE of the lessons due to any reasons can watch a recording of it. However, we greatly encourage students to participate in all sessions as debates and in-depth discussions are a critical component of the Oxford education.

Tuition Fee

The Tuition fee for each course is HKD 5,000 per student. The contact time for each course is 10 hours but students will need to do reading and preparation outside of class time to maximise the learning experience during class hours. In Oxford, it is well known that finishing the weekly essay is only the start of the learning experience.

The size of each class would be limited to 12 students.

Is this for me?

These courses are designed for academically inclined secondary school students who are intellectually curious and would like to explore particular discipline more deeply. It is equally suitable for students who have a particular vocation/subject in mind e.g. medicine or law or would like to learn more about different disciplines and how it may look like in university. Due to the academic rigour, it would be most suited for students in Year 10-12 (or Year 11-13 in the British system), although we also consider academically gifted Year 9 students. Check out our FAQ for more information regarding suitability.

Each instructor will provide a course in their respective disciplines where the length of each course is 10 hours each.

Courses for the following subjects will be offered this summer.

  • Medicine
  • Law
  • Engineering
  • Physics
  • Mathematics
  • Politics
  • Public Health

Deadlines

First Round Deadline: Wednesday 25 June 2020

Second Round Deadline: Friday 3 July 2020

The second round of applications may not open should the Summer School decide that there are sufficient number of students attending the program. It is advisable that interested students should apply as soon as possible. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis and payment is required to secure your place. Courses will only run when a minimum number of students have enrolled, failing which the tuition fees will be refunded to course participants.

We look forward to welcoming you to VSA this summer!
