In today’s age, global exposure is a vital component of a holistic and comprehensive learning process. The knowledge that’s attained from global visits and international festivals or seminars provide students with a platform to experience and appreciate global scenarios and viewpoints from a unique perspective. Similarly, student exchange programs offer youngsters with cross-cultural exposure to broaden their horizons.
International perspective and knowledge can positively influence the growth of a student in numerous unique ways, mainly through the following actions.
● Knowledge of foreign languages
● Cross-cultural exposure
● A sense of accountability and responsibility
● Personality and attitude enhancement
Educational bodies and institutes across the globe are slowly understanding the benefits of global education. At Pearl Academy, the eminent faculty has increasingly welcomed this trend and applied it in courses offered by them.
At an undergraduate level, Pearl has presented the opportunity for students to avail a bachelors degree by pursuing courses at University of Derby, UK or Torrens University, Australia. The Academy facilitates enrollment to these courses. UK and Australia are extremely student-friendly countries, attracting an array of talent not only from India but other countries across Europe and Asia as well. This enables students to understand diverse cultures and traditions, which can be applied in their work as well – especially for design and fashion students.
At the postgraduate level, all students obtain a broad idea of contemporary international trends through masterclasses conducted by global faculty, and can also register in international student exchange programs. Students enrolled in courses such as Fashion Design, Fashion Styling & Image Design, Fashion Business, Luxury Brands, Communication Design, Interior Design & Styling, and Fashion Communication receive a diploma from Pearl Academy that is validated by Domus Academy, Milan, Italy. They are provided with golden opportunities to attend workshops, visit local factories or manufacturing units, and interact with the industry experts of the international market.
Students enrolled in the exchange programmes get to attend classes at Domus Academy. This institute is located in Milan that is generally considered to be the fashion capital of the world, making it a dream destination for all fashion students as a source of inspiration. Additionally, the Domus Academy faculty visits Pearl every year as an international visiting faculty to impart relevant insights to students who are not part of the exchange programmes.
Students are also encouraged to visit and attend global fashion confluences all over the world. These include the Dubai Design Week and Paris Fashion Week. Pearl Academy believes it is critical for students to understand aspects of the practical world, which is why students all provided the opportunity to attend these renowned events. This cross-cultural experience transcends into the campuses in India as well. International students visit the country for a certain period of time and imbibe their thought process and culture into the mindset of Indian students, ensuring a productive cycle of cross-cultural learning.
