Campus quotes

Kristin Naomi Sandstrand studies Project Management Arts and Creative Industries.

“I really enjoy the study, and I see that it can provide opportunities both while I’m in school and after I’ve graduated. Being submerged in all this culture and happiness all the time is a great plus!”

Anders Mikkelsen studies programming:

“What I value the most, is the actual study. It is just as challenging as you want it to be. At the same time, the entire teaching staff is very committed. I have emailed lecturers late in the evening, and they have responded right back. Socially, the range of personalities is wide, which means that everybody can be whomever they want to be. When you come here, as long as you engage yourself and communicate, you have the opportunity to grow in the areas you are interested in. And that is really unusual; I’ve never experienced an environment like this anywhere!”

Collaboration across disciplines

Collaboration between Graphic Design, Interactive Design, and E-business has resulted in projects that inspire both admiration and reflection.

The purpose of the assignment was to explore how visual expressions combined with interactivity could promote storytelling and communication.

Rolando Gonzalez says that the industry is seeking students who master cross-disciplinary collaboration, and that the motive behind this fusion of disciplines was just that: to help students from different programmes get together and share their knowledge.
