EDT Student Procedures

BFA 1 Review.

At the end of year one of the BFA Programme, the BFA 1 Review requires each student to present a formal review with a student presenting their work to date that will confirm a student’s enrolment status at the Academy. The BFA 1 Review provides the EDT Department with the opportunity to evaluate how the student is coping with each course and if there are any problems. For the student, it provides the opportunity to reflect on all that they have achieved in the first year of study since entering the BFA programme. It is an opportunity to think about what you have done and also what you would like to do and which study stream you might be interested in selecting.

EDT Internships.

The final year of the Technical Direction BFA curriculum includes a requirement for a Professional Internship. The Internship provides a directed and supervised educational activity that provides a student with an opportunity for professional learning and growth that may not be available within the Academy but which would, in the opinion of the faculty and Chair, make a valuable contribution to a student's artistic development. It is also possible for a student to take an Internship as part of their programme of studies when it is not a formal requirement of the programme.

Requirements to participate in a Professional Internship.

  • Approval of the Head of Department (HOD)
  • A minimum Grade Point Average GPA of 2.0 (C) overall, and a CGPA of 2.3 (C+) in a Major Study.
  • Have been in residence for more than two semesters (three-year degree) or four semesters (four-year degree) in the BFA programme. Students with prior professional or academic training and Advanced Standing students may be exempted from this rule.
  • A Full-time student’s Engagement in Curriculum – related Internship/On-campus part-time Work Application Form and a Professional Internship Contract must be completed to obtain credit for the work completed and recorded prior to the start of the Professional Internship.
  • In general (48) hours of supervised work per semester equals one (1) unit of academic credit which will require the student to work a minimum of (48) hours per week for a total of (768) hours for academic credit to be awarded.

A student’s placement will be determined by an interview with representatives from one of the School’s establish internship programmes in Hong Kong. See the HOD of your Department to obtain a list of companies that participate in this programme.

An Internship will normally be scheduled during the First Semester of the BFA4 year.

A (4-16) week internship for academic credit may be preceded by a paid Internship during the summer non-teaching period.

A faculty supervisor will visit the agency to observe students for a period pre-determined by the initial Professional Internship contract.

A student receiving credit for work completed cannot also receive a fee for completing the same work. However, a student completing the hours required for credit may work additional hours for the same host for a fee. A non-resident of Hong Kong will not be eligible for this option unless they have received a Work Visa from the Hong Kong Immigration Department.

The Host Company may cover per diem and travel expenses for an Intern in addition to academic credit.

BFA 2 Mid Residence Review.

Half way through the BFA Programme, the Mid Residence Review requires each student to present a formal review with a student presenting their work to date that will confirm a student’s enrolment status at the Academy. The Mid Residence Review provides the EDT Department with the opportunity to evaluate how the student is coping with each course and if there are any problems. For the student, it provides the opportunity to reflect on all that they have achieved in the past four semesters since entering the BFA programme. It is an opportunity to think about what you have done and also what you would like to do and where you want to go in the future. Part of the Mid Residence Review will also include a proposal for the study stream that you will select for the final two years of your residency. Please see the description below:
