Many young people are interested in how the content they enjoy on social media is created. Never has the interest in creative jobs been so high. Web or game design, film making or creating viral content – many high school graduates seek to get experience in these fields after high school.
And for a good reason. The demand for these experts in companies is skyrocketing too. The way how marketing departments can reach their potential customers has changed radically since the arrival of video streaming and social media. And so the demand was born for a new generation of media experts and content creators, to capture that customer attention.
At Silk Road International School we want to be at the forefront of that change and provide our students with the best start into a media or design career. At SRIS we focus on subjects with growing prospects in the job market of the future.
New Cambridge Subjects for 2021
For the school year 2021/2022 we are extending our subjects with Cambridge syllabuses which have not been available in Bishkek at any school until now.
Based on feedback from parents, students and companies, we will be introducing:
All these subjects are highly relevant in the changing Kyrgyz economy, offering a perfect background for the three largest growing sectors in the Kyrgyz Republic.
The subject Media Studies gives students a deep understanding of how media work, how content is produced and how consumers perceive the communication presented by the media.
At university Media Studies students, either continue this subject at greater depth or specialize on one of the many fields required in the media industry.
They later work in broadcast & media, publishing and journalism, advertising and marketing or in a creative field (e.g. arts, crafts & design).
