As a digital design student, your day is a combination of lectures, practical workshops, reading group meetings and individual preparation in your own room. Most students attend on a daily basis, and there is a focus on creating a study environment that works well – both academically and socially.
Teaching the Bachelor’s degree programme in digital design consists of traditional university lectures for all the students in your year, classroom lessons for groups of students in the same year, and practical sessions, where you either do case-based or practical exercises in small groups. Part of your time is spent practising using digital tools in a process that combines design methods and aesthetic considerations.
The number of scheduled hours is matched by a certain amount of preparation time. You soon find how important it is to plan your time in order to get through everything. Attending digital design is a full-time job – if not more. A considerable part of your preparation consists of reading texts and analysing works, and you need to spend the same amount of time in discussions and practical exercises, which take place in class or in your reading group. At the beginning, your reading group provides not only your academic base, but also your social one.
This study programme is offered jointly by the Institute of Information and Media Studies (IMV) and the Institute of Aesthetic Studies (IÆF), and you therefore have access to the facilities at both institutes.
As a student at IMV, you have access to computer rooms, a common room, radio and video editing facilities, and a TV studio, not to mention the many comfortable sofas. IMV is located in the IT City, whereas IÆF is located at the former barracks, which has facilities such as an auditorium, a sound studio and rehearsal rooms, etc.
