Scenarios to Acquire Additional Funding

Students may be able to secure a well-paid four-month internship in their internship semester. However, please be advised that not all internships are paid equally. Some students choose to work in exchange for very valuable experiences in the field they desire to enter within digital media, or they choose to join a startup for an equity stake. Many of our students also receive scholarships. In the September 2017 intake, +30% of students received scholarships or additional funding.
