Students with artistic or creative talents are often in high demand by advertising and creative agencies that are more than eager to train and harness their talents.  Some have the creative skills to work for the console gaming industry, textile and fashion industries or in the performing arts.  Recognizing the fact that raw talent is rare and not a product of formal education, the pertinent businesses are more than happy to take them and even sponsor scholarships for them to pursue higher education after a few years of service with them.
