Meet an MDC Student – Andras

andras

Late January around 100 students arrived at Multimedia Design and Communication to begin their 2-year programme.
Among them was 20-year old Andras, originally from Budapest but a resident in Aarhus for almost two years.

“I have been studying Chemical and Biotechnical Science at the University of Aarhus for three semesters but decided to make a change. Although I am quite good at math, I have been drawing and painting all my life. I missed the creative aspect, so now I look forward to widen my creative palette and open up new career opportunities.”

The hardest thing for Andras was to tell his parents back home about his change of career plans.
“I guess I started at the university to please them – this programme I have chosen for myself.”

Studytrip to London. April 2012

Classes K + H + E represented by 52 students went on a studytrip to London in late April. The weather was changeable except for the day when we had booked a 4 hour guided Street Art tour. That day it was raining cats and dogs. Two months rain falling in 24 hours…Wet, wet, wet


Our program started with a visit to Natural History Museum. And if you think this is a place with dusty, stuffed animals you have to think again.There is a fantastic display of all sorts of multimedia installations and experimental devices and you can even experience a simulated earthquake. Very interesting museum and it is free
