Digital Media & Design Tours Swinburne

The College's Year 10 Digital Media and Design students gained an insight into university life during a tour with two Old Collegians this week.

Lily Cowan Benz and Oliver Manton (OGC 2017) both began their film and television courses at the Swinburne University of Technology this year, and they welcomed the Year 10 group to the university on Monday 14 May. 

Lily and Olli spoke to the students about university life, the difference between school and university, the course work, the fun they're having and the incredible equipment they have access to at university.

Course Director Dr Mark Freeman spoke more about the number of hours students attend university, how to get into the course, what to expect, and transitioning from school to university. 

This was followed by a tour of their learning spaces, film studio, camera gear areas, editing suites and sound recording studios. Students were buzzing from the experience and followed up the next day with discussions and further questions about their experiences and thoughts.

Thank you to Lily, Olli and Mark for their help organising this day out.
