Micaela and Ricardo - IMPs always come back

Two IMP 2005 students; Micaela Paiva and Ricardo Meneses from Portugal have visited Tampere again this week, yesterday they came to School of Art and Media. In Autumn 2005 they participated in the Interactive Media Programme (IMP), a special course for exchange students.

Micaela and Ricardo had two main reasons for this trip: to experience snow and to meet old friends in Tampere. The snow is late again this winter, but fortunately some snow fell, and friends are always available in Tampere.

In 2005 Micaela and Ricardo were students of Faculdade de Belas Artes Lisboa but have graduated some years ago. Micaela is now web designer and Ricardo does graphical design in the company he runs with some friends.

The IMP for exchange students was arranged 2000-2008. From this autumn on we don't have a special programme for exchange students, but they can take courses in the new IMP, our four year Degree Programme in Media and participate in courses run in English of our Finnish degree programmes.
