Hyper Island Runs a Digital Education Pilot In the UK

In spring 2011 Hyper Island will launch an intensive digital education pilot in the UK. The pilot will run full-time for 5 months at our Manchester base in the Northern Quarter, followed by an industry internship for 3 months.

The pilot will aim toward industry professionals’ who are ready to focus on digital immersion with the central themes of creativity, technology, information society, branding, interactive communication, group dynamics and leadership.

Key players from the digital media industry have worked with Hyper Island to develop this new and innovative pilot programme. The industry has a central role in all Hyper Island ventures, so Hyper Island will recruit both students and industry partners for this pilot. NESTA - the UK's National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts - are supporting the pilot’s first year.

Further program information and details of how to apply will be published in January 2011.

If you are interested in attending the programme, please contact peter.hagander@hyperisland.se to receive more information regarding the application process.
