The objective of the preparatory year is to provide students with a solid foundation of fundamental, artistic, and technical skills necessary to expand their capabilities and effectively utilize digital tools in the subsequent class levels.
The following two years are aimed at reinforcing the fundamentals and skills learned in the preparatory year, and at familiarizing students with the digital landscape and various software that are frequently utilized by graphic artists throughout their training at New3dge. During this time, students work on strengthening their portfolios to become stronger candidates for “contrat de professionnalisation” in a company. Additionally, students are able to choose their area of specialization during this period.
