Professional development courses

Professional development courses, perfecting your skills.

With the real-time shifts and changes in the job market, RUFA has created a series of high-level professional development courses.
RUFA professional development courses are designed for Master and Bachelor of Arts graduates, as well as professionals who would like to refresh or renew their skill set.

These courses are ideal for students who would like to specialize even more and upgrade their theoretical and practical knowledge in art, communication and technology.

Professional development classes, for those who study and those who work.

The main objective of the professional development courses at RUFA is to provide students and professionals with solid practical experience, necessary to improve their ‘employability’ or status in job market.
Professional development courses fill the gap between knowledge and hands-on experience which standard academic courses often fail to provide. They supply professionals with an immediate, practical preparation, useful in upgrading their skill-set and ‘employability’ quickly and efficiently.

Learning from professionals.

Courses are taught by established professionals, who bring their own skills and experience, enriching the content and quality of their teaching. This is the key to ensuring that information is transformed into real-life knowledge, which is easily assimilated and reflects the realities of the working professional. Teachers share case studies, and include students in work labs and often include students directly in their own professional activities. Students are encouraged to apply research and comparative analyses in bridging and combining theory and practice; teachers act as a catalyst between the Academy and the professional working environment.
