Utrecht School of the Arts our New Partner

We have had a lot of interaction with the Utrecht School of Arts, but no formal agreement of staff and student exchange before. But soon we will have.

On the last day of their our to Netherlands Leena Mäkelä and Cai Melakoski visited the Faculty of Art, Media and Technology in Hilversum and got familiar with the departments of media, game design and music technology.

Studies are project based liked in our school. They have a dedicated project office to support the projects, and they invest more time and energy in the research phase than we do. We consider loaning some ideas and practices from them.

A very nive feature was that all BA and MA students prepared their final exam projects on the top floor in one of the buildings. This enables multidisciplinary projects and new ideas.

We will meet representatives from Hilversum next time at our International Week in May.
