I’m currently a student in my third year of university studying BA(Hons) Photography. Even though I do enjoy photography, I really want to be an art therapist in the future. My problem is that when I leave University, I want to go on the MA Course in either Roehampton or Goldsmiths to study art psychotherapy. These courses ask for a lot of requirements, so I know i’m in a bad starting position to begin with. Apparently, I need to build up a portfolio and get some work experience… which is kind of none existence to me right now.
Although, my other alternative, is to join an Art Therapy Foundation year which both of these universities offer. Which is great for me because within that year I could build up a portfolio and gather some hours of work experience. However, I’m not entirely sure how the foundation course works, because I want to move to London to study.. does student finance still support Foundation courses? Also I would have to sort out accommodation and not going to lie, it’s all stressing me out haha.
I just don’t know where to start and even if I do get accepted to the foundation course, do i need to prepare for an interview? are they expecting to see me with much experience? because this is the problem I have.
I’d love some advice. Thank you
