The New Media Design programme has a great mix of web, design and business courses. I really like the fact that you are learning more than just graphic design.
Before I began studying on this programme, I hadn’t considered trying something like coding, and didn’t think I could do it. But the coding course was really interesting, and I think it has helped me expand my design skills and has opened up career paths for me in the future.
We had a lot of group work in our first year which has been the most exciting part for me. I got to collaborate with my classmates on projects such as designing magazines and web games. It was a lot of fun.
Being at JU isn’t just about studying. This is such an international university and has a very rich after-school culture – sport clubs, cultural days, language cafés, music and theatre groups and lots of parties – I was surprised at the variety of things to do and it’s given me so many friends from all over the world, fantastic shared experiences and great memories.
Besides high-quality education, the School of Engineering provides an industrial placement course and hosts job fairs so that you can get a head start in your career. We also get the chance to exhibit our work within the school’s building. When I graduate I hope to use all the experience and skills I have gained from this programme to become a UX designer.
