What does this course contain?

Course in brief

In the next three years, you will develop the cutting-edge creativity and technical skills to help you to shine in the fast-paced world of multimedia.

Together with our strategic know-how, you will build a commercial awareness as well as the leadership and intercultural communication skills needed for the international workplace.

Our English-language programme teaches you to embrace technology’s potential, and find meaningful digital answers to the challenges clients and customers face.

Each semester begins with a boot camp. This gives you a taste of what to expect in the modules and seminars in the coming months. Everything you learn is preparation for your end-of-term assignment.

This is a chance to apply your knowledge, exercise that curiosity and deliver results both individually and as part of a team. From day one, our project-based approach gives you an understanding of the realities of work.

This way of learning continues until the last semester in your final year, when the focus shifts to on-the-job experience. You have two options…

Got an entrepreneurial streak? Then, you can apply for student entrepreneur status and if successful pursue your own start-up.

Or choose to go abroad for a different kind of adventure, getting on-the-job experience working for company.

Whatever you decide, this 16-week placement is likely to have a significant impact on your next step…
