New Screens Experience (exchange programme)

Real-world clients, mixed-reality stories

The New Screens Experience is a hands-on semester dedicated to exploring transmedia storytelling and new screens technology. Through learning-by-doing, students apply theory to practical projects for clients such as digital agencies, artists, museums and companies. Students learn how to create characters, story worlds and interactive experiences that expand and unfold across several platforms using new screens technology and methods like Augmented Reality, Projection Mapping, Interactive Spaces and gamification. Film – in any shape or form – is incorporated into each project. The goal is to learn how to create unified, entertaining experiences where each platform and technology makes a unique contribution to a transmedia story world.

Build a great portfolio

Classes are taught by assistant and associate professors as well as experienced professionals from the digital visual industries. The entire programme is based on learning-by-doing, so lectures are short, and theory is applied to practical projects from day one. Students work in teams and receive appreciative feedback on their creative performance on a near-daily basis. At the end of the programme, each student will have an extensive new screens portfolio and an in-depth understanding of team-based creative processes.

Enjoy a creative classroom

Students attend all lectures and work on their projects in the programme’s very own creative workshop. 24-hour access to first-rate professional equipment enables students to realise their creative visions in thor-ough detail. The workshop has digital production facilities, a workspace as well as a kitchen and a lounge area that makes for a warm and friendly atmosphere. As the semester progresses, photos, drawings, mood boards, props and other materials that the class is working on/with come to adorn the workshop.

A series of lectures and hands-on workshops lead up to the programme’s final student project where filmic and transmedia storytelling transcends the screen and expands into the physical world: a real life experience using technologies such as film, projection mapping, game design and XR [AR,VR,MR] to immerse guests in a hybrid, transmedia story.

Ready for common meals, city walks and language cafes?

The Student House on the street promoting their offersIn Copenhagen – a mere ten steps from the famous Round Tower – the sun is shining on the cafe tables outside the Student House. Every day, huge amounts of low-priced coffee is served for hundreds of students, either talking in groups or absorbed in individual studies. International coordinator Stine Agerbæk barely knows where to begin when we ask her what the Student House has to offer international students:

”We arrange city walks with guided tours around the city. We run a language cafe where we speak Danish, English, Spanish, Chinese and other languages. Wednesdays we host our civic restaurant where you can have a meal for only DKK 25 kroner and we often have presentations from unions, social workers, experienced international students and others who can help with practical stuff related to accommodation, employment and social life.”

Forty nationalities working together

At the Student House, there is a real good chance of running into somebody who speaks your language or knows your home country. About 40 different nationalities work together to create a great student life for everyone here.

We do everything from celebrating Danish Christmas, Irish Saint Patrick's Day or other high festivals to booking a band to play West-African music. All our activities and events rely on volunteers contributing with ideas and man-hours. This kind of grassroots work is quite common in Denmark. Our student volunteers from all over the world are a major resource for us. They help create an international environment with a fun and dynamic vibe,” says Stine Agerbæk.

Awesome international house

Student life is also a real melting pot other places in Denmark, for example at Roskilde University where international students participate actively in political student representation and social life at the school. This is what we learn from Kristian Bruun, who is chairman of the student council, which conducts its meeting in English because one of the board members is from Argentina.

Luckily it is springtime in Denmark, but six months ago Danish and international students were making Christmas decorations in Copenhagen’s Student House.Every time the national parliament or the university proposes a new reform, we say to them: Do not forget the international students! At Roskilde University, we have this awesome international house, which serves as a place to meet up for organizational or social purposes. We have had a great deal of success with our cooking sessions where we prepare Danish food together,” says Kristian Bruun who studies global relations with co-students from all over the world.

Danish friends

In another part of the country, the university college VIA UC trains engineers, designers, teachers, medical nurses, etc. The headquarters are located in Aarhus with more than 40 study programmes spread out across the entire central Jutland area.

We strive to integrate our approximately 3,500 international students in the study environment and make sure they gain Danish friends. It is a great privilege to have students from abroad, because they strengthen our international environment and give us a lot of new input,” explains Palle Würtz, who studies social work and is chairman of the student council at VIA UC.

A visit from the rest of the world

Yasmin Davali is chair of The Joint Council of Danish Student Organizations, which covers the whole country.

Danish educational institutions prioritize international students more than ever. It is really positive when Danish students make an effort to give their fellow students from abroad a warm welcome. Today, education, research and development take place across national borders, so if we can have the rest of the world drop by for a visit here, that is just great,” she says.
