【AIP名校面对面】英国赫特福德大学Marty St James 教授访谈
Hi, Marty. Welcome to AIP. Well, can you introduce University of Hertfordshire briefly to us?
你好，我是Marty St James教授，是赫特福德大学创意艺术学院研究生课程主任。赫特福德大学位于伦敦以北，火车车程大约20分钟。我们有两个校区。其中一个是College Land校区，另一个是新校区，位于Deharvaland。
Hi, there, my name is Professor Marty St James. And I’m head of postgraduate area at the school of creative arts in University of Hertfordshire. The University of Hertfordshire, is just north of London, twenty minutes by train. We got two campuses, two aspects of campuses. One is on the college land campus，And the other is a very new campus on the Deharvaland campus.
We’ve got about 25,000 students, which is a lot. In my school alone.We’ve got around about 2,000 students, which is the school of creative arts, which we cover all the subjects in relations to the creative arts as such. We all serve a lively and postgraduate and research area as well. I’m very very optimistic and very very focus on the fact that my university comes that extremely well. It’s a great place to be, it’s a very safe environment, it’s a very caring environment, it’s a good community of students as such, and on the campuses in that.
So what do you think of the students from AIP? Can you give us some feedbacks?
Well, the students at AIP, I think, are very interesting students. I spoke with two this morning, one from the product-design area and one from the jewelry. They impressed me very much indeed. Particularly what impresses me are their notebooks, their sketchbooks and their ideas, and also the fact they are able to see the process through their work as well.
What they must do I think is they must concentrate a little bit more, and show some more of the technical aspects of their work and also some of the final aspects of their work as well, because remember the University of Hertfordshire will very focus on finding students’ employability, and search their very industry and business focuses as well. So this is very important for students come to us: what equipped and what engineer in terms of their thinking, their processes, their ideas and their technical expertise.
So thank you so much for your high evaluation for the students, Is there anything you want to say or some suggestions to the students who might be interested in the University of Hertfordshire
Good question, I think the important thing which we’ve spoken about this morning with the students is how important it is that they get together a very good portfolio. It’s extremely important because it shows a whole number of things in relation to their creativity which they need to demonstrate to my university, as such.
And also it must demonstrate their ability to think naturally about this subject as well and a really bright interesting ideas. With the portfolio they really need to demonstrate this ‘cause remember they are not gonna be such with the portfolio to demonstrator. So it’s very important that they actually show it to demonstrator on the sheet or through the videos or whatever.
The second thing is that I think the students need to make a real intensive look，briefly to find that as much as possible about my universities, I know this well, and compare them as such.
Thus we would welcome you the students to the University of Hertfordshire, and wish them well in their endeavors going forward to such.
