The study trip consists of 20 contact hours per trip. This is structured over two days, providing an immersive experience for students to reflect upon the knowledge and insight that has been gained over the programme and other modules. Students will have the opportunity to meet with major international cultural leaders, network and learn from professional practice and experience as well as reflect on their own role, aims ambitions and projects. Module and session leaders will draw on the international networks of the Royal Academy including, curators, artists, gallerists, dealers and museum directors who may also be attending the event in order to provide opportunities for interacting with professionals and a wide scope of thought leaders with whom students can interact. To help students in the reflexive process there is some direct learning (worksheets) which are undertaken in groups and some learning is conducted individually, with space designed for discussion and debate of experiences encouraging peer-group learning. Finally, students are encouraged to keep a ‘diary’ recording and reflecting on experiences and gaining ideas for their written work and assessments. On a micro level, the educational days deal with possibilities of creation and co-creation by focusing on the frame of thought and abandoning limiting patterns.
