Working in small groups and the excellent level of support between lecturers and students facilitates efficient learning and intensive discussions. The courses provided by the Institute of Media Studies offer a wide range of methodical approaches and encourage participants to look beyond their own noses. Media studies students are supported if they wish to spend one or two semesters at a university in another country.
