英国伯明翰城市大学面试官Robert Huddleston 教授(伯明翰城市大学 艺术设计、媒体学部副部长)


Birmingham City University is located in the middle of England. Its location is really excellent.It’s only about 1 hour and 40 minutes from London. Students can travel from Birmingham to other major cities of Europe, Amsterdam, Paris, Rome, Frankfurt cities .Traditionally, Birmingham University is built on practice. There is a lot of industry in Birmingham.

伯明翰城市大学位于英格兰中部,地理位置非常好,距离伦敦只有1小时40分钟的路程。学生可以从伯明翰前往欧洲各大城市:例如阿姆斯特丹,巴黎,罗马和法兰克福等等。伯明翰的城市工业非常发达,而伯明翰城市大学是建立于实践之上的。




In fact, Birmingham As we know, is the birth place of industry revolution. Nowadays, that translates into a number of creative industries that are set up in Birmingham. So the university has a very strong reputation, has a practice- based university. So its research is applied research. We work a lot with different companies.My role is in the faculty of arts design and media. Our faculty is one of the only very few in Europe we search a diverse range of disciplines from music connecting right to visual communication, fashion design.

实际上,正如我们所知的那样,工业革命发源于伯明翰。今日,这转化成为了一大批发源于伯明翰的创意产业。我们的大学有着非常好的声誉并且是一所以实践为基础的大学,我们大学的是应用型的研究并且和许多公司有着合作。我的工作隶属于艺术设计与媒体系,我们科系是全欧仅有的几个拥有一系列专业从音乐到视觉传达和时尚设计。

So we cover all of the art design subjects and acting music and English. So it’s incredibly diverse which provides really great opportunities for students to experience some aspect of different disciplines in work together in teams. The school of art is very famous; the school of jewelry is very well-known. Music, acting, these role really schools with excellent reputations. In the same ways, the university, is very focused on practice, so our faculty is as well.

因此,我们的专业覆盖所有艺术设计的科目以及配乐和英语。所以说我们的课程非常多样化,为学生提供了很好的机遇,学生也可以通过小组合作的方式来体验课程的各个方面。我们的艺术学院非常知名,珠宝学院非常有名。音乐,表演学院都拥有着极高的声誉,同样地,我们大学非常注重实践,我们的科系也是一样。



I really enjoyed meeting the students this morning and viewed their portfolios. Many, I was meeting the students with interests in jewelry, fashion design. It was also good that there were students interested in product design as well.

我非常开心在今天早上和同学们进行了沟通,并且看到了他们的作品集。我见到的很多学生对于珠宝设计和时尚设计都非常感兴趣,也有很多学生对于产品设计非常感兴趣。




My overall impression is that the foundation course here is doing a really great job and helping the students to develop their work, ready to apply for the art design program, art design and media programs, I should say in the UK and Birmingham. What impress me most of all, I think was that the students begin to develop their own ideas.

学校给我留下的总体印象是,AIP这边为学生们提供的基础课程非常扎实,帮助学生去开展作品集创作所需的工作,帮助学生去申请相关的艺术设计课程,艺术设计和媒体课程。我觉得在英国,最令我印象深刻的是学生们如何发散思维,发展他们自己的想法。



AIP毕业班的同学们向专业教学组老师们讲述作品


To begin with, I thought their portfolios had too much secondary kind of research, in another words, is the students concentrating on collecting information. But I was really pleased to see that later on in their portfolios, the students are beginning to develop their ideas.

首先我认为他们的作品集包含着相当多的二手调研资料,换句话说,学生们非常注重信息的搜集。还让我非常开心的是,在他们之后的作品集中,他们开始去拓展自己独创的想法。

Much more, using their individual viewpoints to do that so that was really good to see if the drawings skills are really good, and I think the students should concentrate to great extending, bring out the best of that skills and have really good ideas, the best students are showing a good approach to experimentation and drawing influences from a range of areas.

另外,学生们运用自己的视角去创作,所以我们也能够从中看出来他们的绘画功底是不是足够好,我认为学生们也应该关注于视角的延长和拓展,在作品中展现出他们最好的绘画技巧和灵感。

So, overall, I was very impressed. The students are very strong. To say which is the better student, it’s actually, really difficult. There were two students that really stood out, the reason they stood out is that they were taking a concept that just a little bit further.

总体来讲,他们令我印象深刻。学生们都有很强的实力,让我说哪一个学生更优秀,其实真的非常困难。其中有两个学生表现非常突出,他们突出的原因是他们的作品中能展现出更深入的创作理念。


AIP毕业班学生为Robert教授阐述创作理念

They had the practical skills but they brought kind of more conceptual approach to their studies. That’s something definite we Birmingham mature students are seeing. We want to see students with really good basic practical skillsWe want to see thinkers think individual as well.

他们有良好的实操能力,并且他们在自身的学习研究中运用了概念化的方式,这也是我们的学生所关注的一点,我们希望学生们有着非常好的基础实操技巧,同时我们也希望学生们能够独立思考。




AIP毕业班学生为Robert教授阐述创作理念

I think the best way to prepare for study in Birmingham City University within our faculty is to work hard in the foundation course. We are very interested in students who are showing a lot of enthusiasm for the subject and for the discipline that they want to study.

如果你未来想进入伯明翰城市大学深造,那么在目前的基础课程阶段就必须努力学习基础知识,我们对于那些对目标专业和课程抱有极大热情的学生非常地感兴趣。



AIP毕业班同学对自己的作品进行调试


We want to see students develop their own ideas. When students work in their portfolio, we are interested to see how the students thinking. What kind of images they are looking out. What kind of influences they are drawing on. We don’t necessarily want to see finished pieces of work.

我们希望看到学生们有自己独创的想法,当他们在完成作品集的时候,我们更想知道他们是如何思考的,他们所看到的画面是怎样的,他们笔下画出的是怎样的一种影响。我们并不太需要看到已经完成好的作品。



AIP毕业班同学正在紧张地制作毕业作品集 

For example, if a student studies with the end of getting on a jewelry program. We don’t necessarily want to see the finished jewelry pieces. It’s the idea that much more important. And students showing that they have the real enthusiasm for the disciplines and that they are applying for and they are alive to what they might find in the future.

举例说,一个学习珠宝课程的学生,我们不需要看到珠宝的最终成品,相反,我们更关注他们的设计理念。我们希望看到学生们对于他们未来的专业怀有热情,并且对未来抱有期待。


In another words, they have open mind. They are curious and they want to learn and they want to develop themselves within the disciplines and into the study.

换一种说法就是他们需要打开心胸,保持对未知事物的好奇,并且通过自身的努力在学习的过程中完善自我。
