By 2020年9月24日 九月 26th, 2020 教程&资讯, 留学攻略-免费供您参考学习

全新的2020年申请季已经正式开放了,如英国、美国等部分院校都已经正式开始接受最新的申请了,相比较于去年,部分热门院校的申请流程也发生了一些变化。今天这篇文章我们将分析一下如皇艺等院校最新的申请要求,希望能够帮助大家能够更好的准备自己的申请,拿到自己理想院校的offer。

1.全新的申请时间

今年的皇艺延续了去年的分批申请的政策,不过相较于去年变化不断的时间,今年申请截止时间也是选择在9月底”早早“的公布。

  • 第一批申请截止时间:10月28日
  • 面试安排:11月30日-12月4日
  • 申请结果公布:12月16日
  • 接受offer截止时间:1月6日


当然受到今年COVID-19疫情的影响,RCA的2020年入学的部分专业还在同步接收申请。这也从侧面验证了在上一个申请季有太多的学生选择了defer自己的offer,因此预计今年的名额有可能会减少,2020申请季的难度预计也会大幅提升。

2.全新的作品集要求

今年RCA各个专业的作品集要求都会有所不同,不仅仅是在作品集的内容,在提交格式、版面尺寸、页数等各个方面都有所区别,相较于2019年申请季发生了翻天覆地的变化,由于专业太多,在这篇文章中我们将主要以”Interior Design室内设计“和”Information Experience Design信息体验设计“两个专业为例。

Information Experience Design信息体验设计

  • You are asked to provide a personal statement of a maximum of 500 words. This is an important part of your submission which reflects your interest in the programme as well as your aims and ambitions for your practice. In this statement we look for some evidence of personal interests, a degree of criticality, and specific understanding of IED as presented on the RCA website.
  • Please indicate the pathway you are applying for: Experimental Design, Moving Image Design, or Sound Design. It is possible to change pathway during your study if your direction and work changes accordingly.
  • You may upload up to 20 individual projects or items to your portfolio. These may be single images, a design consisting of more than one image (such as publication), a presentation, a moving image or sound clip. You may add a gallery of six further images to support each of these projects. We value articulation as much as presentation. You therefore need to provide a description of a maximum of 100 words for each project image and a caption of up to 50 words for each of the gallery images.
  • Moving image or sound work must be limited to a maximum of five minutes (full length work will be viewed if you are invited for an interview).
  • You may include links to websites, such as your personal site, or send or link to a PDF file. If there is work included that you have professionally designed for clients, you must explain your role in the design and implementation processes.
  • Images should be in an acceptable format (see formats below) to the following recommended dimensions: width: minimum 36cm (1024 pixels) – or larger height: minimum 27cm (768 pixels – or larger resolution must be 72 dpi (dots per inch) – re-size all images appropriately maximum file size: 2mb for each image and 80mb for a movie file (please note movies are best viewed via a link to Vimeo or YouTube) file formats: JPEG, PNG, MOV, MP4, M4v, website URL (please note PDF files are not suitable) For each piece of work you must indicate: Title Medium Date made Size (cm) length (mins).

可以看到IED的作品集要求是提供一份不超过500字的个人陈述(去年是不超过300字),最多20个项目,每个项目最多可以展示6张图片,每个项目最多可以提供100字的说明文字,每张图片最多提供50字的说明文字。同时对于图片的格式也有严格的要求和限制。

  • We recommend images between 1024 x 768 pixels or greater in size. All image files must be saved as JPG or PNG format with a maximum file size of 2MB. Video files can be submitted in place of images. MOV, MP4 or M4V formats are accepted with a maximum file size of 80MB.

4-6个项目,每个项目包含一张封面图和最多6张内容页(是不是很熟悉,又回到了2018年申请季的要求),每个项目最多可以提供100字的说明文字,每张内容页最多可以提供50字的说明文字。图片不大于1024×768,每张图片不大于2mb。

3.是否需要提供Journey Video?

目前RCA的申请系统还处于崩溃不可用的状态,对于作品集和申请流程更准确的要求需要进入申请系统中详细查看。很多同学都在关心去年最新提出的journey video今年是否依然需要?建议大家可以先观望,如果在9月30日还没有准确消息,建议大家可以利用国庆假期时间进行准备。在此我们可以看看去年马克笔设计留学解读的有关journey video的制作要求吧(以Service Design服务设计为例)《千呼万唤,2020年皇家艺术学院RCA最新申请要求解读》。

原文要求:

In your video, please explain your motivation to be a service designer and provide an example of your favourite service expe-rience. Please then describe an aspect of service design you are most passionate about. Finally, briefly describe your favourite project in your portfolio and describe why you chose it.

This will be a chance to showcase your understanding of service design, your passion to study at a Masters level and your ability to communicate the value and impact of your work.

General Information

1.Your video does not need to be professionally shot and you may use the best resource available to you; we are not assessing the technical quality of this video
2. You must be visible in the video and communicate verbally*.
3. Your video can be in any of these formats: avi, mp4, mov, wmv.
4. Your video must be a maximum of 2 minutes long.

视频要点:

  • 要点1. 动机
  • 要点2. 个人体会到点服务体验
  • 要点3. 感兴趣的服务设计方面

对策:

  • 对应要点1. 贴合动机信,一定要 personal, 切忌 general. 即换了别人的名字就不能再 make sense。
  • 对应要点2. 没有好的办法,得靠积累,建议考虑向同理心或一个低预期+高现实的奇妙情绪转折来说
  • 对应要点3. 项目负责人有个视频,在视频里提到过如 curiocity 或者 courage 这些词, 总之说的实话可以大胆些
  • 对应要点4. 作品集里最服务那个吧,尽量要点在 蓝图后台或者系统图(商业画布),总之要体现设计的功力在系统构建而非触点。

其他要点:

  • 简单粗暴正面回答问题
  • 不要fancy,而要逻辑
  • 一定要personal,和你的过去与未来相关(想一想CV和动机信)
  • 自己出镜、自己说话
  • mp4, 最长2分钟
