Hi, everyone!

I need a tip:

I am really interessed in going back to the university on 2010 for a master’s degree on Multimedia, Motion, Interactive Design, User Interface Design, Computer Interaction or Digital Media, etc, and I would really appreciate your help.

I’ve been searching for Master’s degree in Holland, Sweden, Denmark and other countries from Northern Europe, but my preferece really goes to these 3 countries.

I’ve been looking on internet but, you know, I would like to read the words of people who live there or have had an experience on any university or Design School on Northern Europe.

So, what universities / schools do you recommend?

Thanks in advance!!

I could really recomend Berghs in sweden. It is a highly respected school and most people leaving from there with great jobs. Both in sweden and other countries.

If you are planning on a freelance career I recommend the school of life and use the web to learn in your own time for free – everything you need to learn is available at google.com :)

However if you want a career in a studio or company then yes, a degree is 100% necessary – just wanted to say that.

I have about exactly that master degree you describe above from the ITU in Denmark:

I can really recommend it. Denmark and especially Copenhagen I can recommend as well.

Well even if you are an freelancer a degree is always usefull.

And i know a lot of people that work in a company or studio that didn’t have there degree, it’s not always required but it will get you an job much faster

I got my Masters in technical design and, even though I don’t work in corporate anymore, I still find it useful and think it was well worth the time—if only for the communication skills I gained and opportunities to experiment. Find a program that emphasizes service projects and real world design practices as well as graduate-level design theory.

The important thing to keep in mind with any graduate program: you get out of it exactly as much as you put into it. Love what you study and dive in. :)

Totally agree, for freelancing clients want to see portfolio, having a First Class Degree to show off helps as well though ;) :)

Actually, I want a degree because I’m planning a freelance carrer ;) and mainly because I’m looking for the aspect that “googling” doesn’t provides me: the human part, the cultural part, the sharing experiences with other students ans professionals, etc..

BTW , I wrote “Holland” but I mean Netherlands, sorry :)
