‘What I have found most exciting about the IOCT Masters is the sheer amount of ideas bubbling under the surface. I find it exciting that you can work closely with people who can help you take your ideas from conceptual stages through to post production. I have found it to be as inspiring as I thought it would be, and it has fuelled a passion for the combination of disciplines.’

‘The IOCT Masters course is sold on the fact that it transcends the boundaries between the Arts, Technology and Humanities, and it really does do just that! There’s a range of input from staff across different areas, faculties and expertise, giving the Masters a feel that as well as being part of a wider community within the university we as students can benefit from the wider knowledge base that accompanies that.’
