'Don't wait for permission': how to make a living from an art degree

the guardian - Δευτέρα, 16/09/2019 - 13:27

If you’re starting your creative arts degree, it’s time to start thinking like an artist

This week, Lula Marsh, 18, has been on set doing 12 hour days with a 50 minute commute each way. She is working five days a week as a runner for a film company. She wants to be an actor and is deciding whether to apply to drama school next year. “I’m learning a lot right now,” she says. “I’m meeting really interesting people and I’m finding out a lot about the industry.”

It’s now commonplace for students interested in a career in the arts to start looking for work experience at a young age. Although there has been a 5.4% decline in graduate numbers since 2012/13, competition for full-time work in the creative industries is still high, and a degree alone can’t guarantee a living. So what more can student artists do? Whether you’re about to start university or still weighing up your options, we asked experts and creatives for their tips on how to get ahead.

UK students waiting up to three months for mental health care

the guardian - Δευτέρα, 16/09/2019 - 08:00

University data shows long delays, raising fears young people’s mental welfare will decline in the interim

Students with mental health problems are being forced to wait up to 12 weeks for help from their university, prompting fears that some may take their own lives during the delay.

Undergraduates at the Royal College of Music in London had to wait the longest to start counselling last year, with the worst case being 84 days, figures collected by British universities show.

Starting school can be a traumatic experience – for the parents | Emma Brockes

the guardian - Δευτέρα, 16/09/2019 - 08:00
My children’s school is good and safe, yet dropping them off has stirred an unsoothable panic I haven’t felt since they were babies

There is so much to worry about, said Gertrude Stein, you might as well not worry about any of it. But then again she never dropped two children off at school for the first time. Mine started last week and while one was fine, the other stood in the doorway of her new classroom looking tiny and lost and very alarmed and did the thing that, in extremis, parents fear more than tears: no tears. Looking on from the corridor, I felt something lift up and leave my body like the spirits in Ghost.

Gavin Williamson says system needs looking at amid growth in use of unconditional offers

The education secretary, Gavin Williamson, has backed a review into university admissions, including a fresh look at whether school leavers should only apply for places after receiving their A-level results.

Williamson said recent developments, such as the steep rise in unconditional offers to sixth-formers, reopened questions over the admissions system and its calendar, as part of a review being carried out by the Office for Students (OfS), the higher education regulator for England.

George Orwell was right, private schools bar moves towards a fairer society | Letters

the guardian - Sun, 15/09/2019 - 18:47
Jol Miskin and Margaret Tulloch on what Labour may do about private education, and Robert Harding and John Lancaster on the Oxbridge intake from state schools

I couldn’t agree more with Melissa Benn that the private school system is “morally rotten” and the moment for its demise is, or could, be close (Education, 10 September). I emphasise “could” as this is hardly a new phenomenon or issue.

George Orwell in The Lion and the Unicorn recognised clearly how private education stood in the way of any move towards a fairer, more egalitarian and equal society. He – a product himself of Eton – knew only too well how those educated in such establishments sustained the status quo of a hierarchical society, with them nicely positioned at the top. Today, look no further than the highest echelons of the legal profession, banking, politics and the armed forces for confirmation: public (private) schools and Oxbridge backgrounds are massively over-represented.
