Connecting with Industry

29 August 2012

It's only week one but we have already got some good industry-related events in the diary for September.

First off, the mentors are due in on Wed Sept 12th to meet our new crop of final year students. There won't be a major change to the current mentor line-up, but we do hope to have a couple of new faces on board. We've also written the brief they'll be setting, and this will be handed out on the night.

As part of our Employer Engagement Scheme, we've set up some training for recent graduates looking to tweak their skills. Alice Will, a digital planner at the award-winning Front Page Agency in Glasgow, will be doing a day-long studio session on digital marketing and social media on Sept 19th. We already have a big up-take for this, there are just a few slots left, so email us if you want to be involved.

Finally, Murry Calder, a Director at MediaCom, and recently listed at No.71 in the DRUM's Power 100, will be popping in on Friday 21st to give a guest lecture to both HND New Media and HND Graphic Design on the future of advertising.
