Partnerships in the UK and beyond
The School has established partnerships with other higher education institutions both nationally and internationally – we have partner institutions in countries such as Nepal, Trinidad, Sri Lanka, Spain and Germany as well as in the UK.
Celebrating success and showcasing student work
The School presents an annual summer show where students have the opportunity to showcase their work to the general public at the end of the academic year. The show features a wide range of student work including games, high-tech toys, cyber security and electronics demos, music, films and animations. It is an opportunity for students to develop networking and presentation skills, enhance their portfolios, liaise with industry professionals and show their friends and family what they have achieved. Film students also screen their work at the BFI on London’s South Bank.
