Featured Project: Blending Spaces in New York

We’re pleased to be able to share the video celebrating the Blended Spaces project we have been working on with Farmingdale College in New York State.  You can find out more about the project and exhibition here –

Dr. Tom Flint is currently making plans for next year’s joint project – this time the students from Farmingdale will be visiting us in Edinburgh in August.  Watch this space to see what happens!  If any current students want to be involved this year in Edinburgh and next year in New York please get in touch with Tom.

Guest Post: More than just study abroad… by Matt Blaikie

Today’s post has been written by Matt who is in year 3 of our Digital Media Global course and is currently studying in Australia.   As you can see from his images and video he is taking full advantage of the experience!

My semester abroad has easily been the best decision I’ve ever made. I know it sounds stereotypical and you’ve heard it a bunch of times but it’s true. I’ve met so many people and made so many close friends that it’s difficult to imagine never meeting these people. I feel I was fortunate in the fact that my accommodation (International House) was full of people just like me and we got along right from the start. There were 12 of us in total and we planned our first trip a couple weeks in, hiring a couple of cars and doing a road trip through the great Ocean Road.  We’ve travelled to Cairns when we had a week off University and also went to Tasmania for the weekend! After our semester finished we went from Melbourne to Sydney to Brisbane, Gold Coast and now Bali.

Found the Scottish beach hut on Brighton beach! 


New friends

And Bali!

It’s great to see Matt making the most of his time abroad, looking forward to finding out about all he and the other Global students who are currently with him have learned and seeing more of their photos and videos in September when they come back for year 4.  Talk to us if you are a current or prospective student and you fancy an adventure like this!  

Thanks to Matt for the words and photos.
