Our course is outwards facing, always working closely with cutting edge organisations and partners. We invests in creating an engaging learning journey through practicing and experimenting. We aim to create conditions that will help our students make the most out of their chosen craft and to learn through various contexts and activities. In some cases we do so through immediate connections to external industries and by bringing our students in contact with professionals, renowned artists and specialists in the creative industries.  Some examples of student activities involving contact or work with external organisations and events are:

An important learning resource for our students is the experience, insights and personal practice of the academic staff. Coming from various backgrounds and carrying a host of knowledge and practical wisdom, the members of the DMSA team are interested in sharing transferable skills and mentoring for achieving the best professional practice in the creative industries. Staff and student collaboration in these external activities is pivotal and encouraged throughout the three years of the course.
