Question by okaitsuke: Word Terms/meanings?
I’m currently studying Diploma for Digital Animation and Visual Effects in Malaysia. And I’m interested in pursuing further studies in the following University(Singapore).
(recommended by a lecturer)
But I do not understand the terms of words.
An intellectual and creatively balanced 4-year undergraduate program in a wide spectrum of art, design and media diciplines, leading to an internationally recognized Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.
So what is it I’m getting? Undergraduate program or Bachelor degree? Is it the same?
What is Advanced Standing?
What is the difference between Digital Animation and Digital Filmmaking?
Answer by GRR
It’s the same. Undergraduate program means that you don’t have to have a previous degree. All bachelor degrees are undergraduate. Masters and PhD’s are graduate programs.
Advanced standing is when they recognize your experience outside of the program and count that toward some of your course credits. For example, if some of the curriculum was covered by the diploma program you’re currently studying (or by work experience), and they receive all the documentation to demonstrate it’s equivalency, then they may exempt you from taking those courses in their program. (That can save you tuition money and time to complete the program.)
The names of the program may not make that much difference. You have to look at each program in detail. To me, Digital Animation suggests computer-generated imagery while Digital Filmmaking suggests editing on AVID systems.
Hope that helps.
