TALK TO A CURRENT STUDENT

International Motion Festival Cyprus

The International Motion Festival Cyprus organised by the Department of Arts and Education Sciences received the EFFE Label for the second consecutive year. Following a thorough assessment process conducted by the relevant national authority of each country and then by the International Festival Jury, 761 festivals from 31 countries now belong in the first generation of festivals honoured with the EFFE Label 2015-2016.

Motion Vibes

The Department of Arts has developed an innovative educational program, the Motion Vibes, which helps hearing impaired students to understand the emotional value of music. Motion vibes is based entirely on the relation between kinesiology and sound using vibrations, which enables students to add sound in their animation graphics using images. The 3D and Animation instructor Ms Demetra Egglezou, who developed this project, presented it at the Motion Design Education Summit in Dublin.

In my opinion, what makes the graphic design degree in the European University stand out are the very good foundations one receives working with great teachers-professionals, the way they prepared us for the graphic design, out there, on the market,  the richness of aspects through which we approached m graphic design and  the fact that that  this program helped me to get to know myself better as an artist.

Andrea Avgousti 

I can say that my experience with the graphic arts program at the European University was love at first sight. What I remember is that I was very excited to learn how commercials, special effects in movies and cartoons are made. It was an unforgettable experience, the best years of my life so far.

Anthi Koune

The program was everything I expected. Educational, creative, enlightening and defining. The program was an amazing experience from beginning to end! I gained so much from my teachers, fellow students/friends as much as cultivating experiences from all our trips, lectures, creative projects and more. One thing that certainly stood out for me was the amazing relationship between teachers and students throughout all the years and certainly the ability to express yourself freely in the most inventive ways.
