The deadline for the free night school has been extended to Monday 26th August

D&AD Extends Applications Deadline for New Blood Shift 2019
This year sees a further decline in the number of students taking art and design A-Levels, falling by 1.6% from 2018 to 2019.

This, alongside the number of students believing it is “important” to go university for future success falling 10% since 2018, shows how many students are now looking to find alternative routes to their dream creative careers. 

D&AD has extended the deadline for applications for its life-changing and career-making free night school, New Blood Shift to next Monday (26 August). This year also sees the introduction of a new £10,000 travel and accommodation fund for New Blood Shift London. This will include a relocation bursary for two applicants alongside support on travel costs for all of those on the programme.

D&AD New Blood Shift is a three-month intensive night school helping young people without qualifications kickstart a creative career. Led by industry experts, applicants learn valuable skills such as working on real client briefs and selling themselves to future employers, through a series of practical workshops, exercises and projects. 

In 2018, 78% of participants from the programme secured placements following graduating the programme in January. This compares to 41% of design graduates just 24% of media graduates employed in their sectors after 6 months of graduating.

Details and entry requirements are available here. Applications close on 26th August 2019.
