This global intensive experience takes place within the GRAP2495 Professional Practice course. You will begin working on an online collaborative project with final semester Master of Arts (Advertising) students at the University of Arts, London before departure. On arrival in London, you will spend two weeks in an intensive immersion experience, working with live clients and your UK peers to develop and present professional solutions to communications briefs.
 
You will have the opportunity to put your communication skills and learning into practice in a cross-cultural and international environment. You’ll be exposed to global networking opportunities through meeting with, and working alongside, industry partners and peers; as well as gaining exposure to global best practice and processes through first-hand experience, research and observation. In doing so, you will gain broader networks, exposure and industry experience, as well as opportunity to work in cross-disciplinary and intercultural teams, than would otherwise be possible. This focus of this global intensive is on preparing you for success as global practitioners.
 
The tour is open to postgraduate students enrolled in GRAP2495 Professional Practice (flex term 2018). You will be selected on a competitive basis, according to your accomplishment in your current Masters program (GPA) and your personal motivations, skills and potential to contribute to the project and team. Check with your academic advisor for more details.
