Internationalisation: Finlayson Campus welcomes students from 23 countries

Finlayson Campus is this autumn more international than ever. New nationalities are present among Degree Programme in Media students, Finlayson degree programmes welcome 21 exchange students (new record), and MA in Screenwriting hosts five international students.

The first international event will be the Engage Learning Games Summer School August 30 to September 3.

Guest lecturers and other specialists are expected from the UK, Denmark and Greece. A new international project, "European Virtual Academy" will start.

The international atmosphere will continue in the spring term: we expect 50 international visitors to the traditional International Week April 11-15.

The academic supply for international students will also grow; a new study module for international students, "Future Film Studies", is under construction and is scheduled to kick off in January.

A high number of students and staff will go abroad as well. All second year students of Degree Programme in Media will participate in EUROPRIX Multimedia Festival in Graz in November, and a group of fine art students participate in the Culture Capital of Europe programme with their exhibition Promoting Changes, to give two examples.
