A comprehensive and passion-driven program in collaboration with the University of Chichester and Big Rock Institute*
The Career-related Programme involves studying three subjects from the Diploma Programme along with specific Career-related Studies (CRS) linked to academic passion and future university and professional aspirations. In the Business and Management CRS, students attend and study two university courses at H-FARM College. In the Creativity CRS, students take four courses at Big Rock Institute for specialized training in Digital Visual Art and Computer Graphics.
Two years of passion and in-depth study
The Career-related Study supports active participation and dedication for students who already feel directed towards a specific passion, vocation, or profession. For those with a clear vision of their future, whether it be in higher education or a professional career, there is a strong need to focus on their vision and concentrate on studying what motivates them to learn.
This fusion of passion and purpose, accompanied by resolute determination, is essential in aligning the school program with the student’s intrinsic motivations, enhancing the effectiveness and relevance of their learning experience. If students continue their studies at H-FARM College or Big Rock Institute, exams and credits are recognized.
