FOUNDATION SEMESTER

The transition from secondary school to tertiary education presents particular challenges, especially in light of the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the delivery of high school education. For this reason, the Cape Town Creative Academy presents a 6-month long foundation semester to all first-year students, irrespective of their creative field of interest, during which they are prepared for tertiary education in a manner that acknowledges the uncertainties that characterise current global economic, social and environmental conditions.

Students, therefore, commence their studies, not with a focus on one particular creative discipline, but rather with an emphasis on developing vital attributes such as creativity, curiosity, agility and resilience that will set them up well, not only for tertiary studies but also for the professional life to come afterwards. This shared foundation across creative disciplines furthermore gives students the advantage of being better informed when confirming their choice of specialisation in the second semester of their first year. During the second semester, students specialise in either Communication Design, Contemporary Art, Interaction Design or Motion Design so as to hone a particular skill set and professional sensibility that relates to that particular sector within the creative economy.
