    Hi Antonio!
    You can check the requirements for the assignment here:

    The programming part of it is quite simple. As you have more skills in Photoshop and After Effects you can explore those skills by creating an interesting caracter, for example.

    The examination board doesn't expect to have a complex and finished product, but to evaluate what you're capable of delivering so far, and your potential once you improve your skills during the course.

    Good luck!

    Can you find a part-time job there? I mean, is it difficult for someone that doesn’t speak Dutch to find a job?

    Hey Olger!

    It depends! I had friends who found a job quite quickly and other who complained it was quite difficult. I think in the end it really goes in hand with your motivation and creativity. If you're not afraid to look (and hear some no's), you can find a part-time job. Of course I advise you to have enough savings for at least the first 3 months.

    How much did you know before you entered the course?like what coding languages or did you have any experience 3d modelling or animating before this?what sort of skills should you know
    asked 1 year, 7 months ago
    told 1 year, 7 months ago

    I had some experience in web programming, but no experience at all in 3d modelling.

    It would be nice for you to get familiar with the basics of programming, the language doesn't matter THAT MUCH as the concepts. So you can pick up on Phyton or PHP or Javascript - you can find good basis courses online.
    The same goes for some adobe softwares. But you don't need to master anything specific before you start the programme - you'll learn at the programme the path for you, and from there specialise on the softwares / skills you'll use in your career.

    There are all essential as wel as specific VR accomodations to support you in designing innovative prototypes but not so much in a medical sense at the creative media studies building.

    Physiotherapy depends much more on physical experience our bodies directly and less on visualizing it by means of computers however a combination of both is what is said could be interesting in the future.

    Enschede is a good place to discuss this not only at school. For example could you meet people afterschool at events like the following:


    Hope that is a suffucient answer for you. If not do not hesitate to correct or clarify it.

    What do you like most about this program? I would love to hear everyone's response to this whether you juniors, sophomores, freshmen, or graduate. Thank you and I'll be looking forward to your replies. :)

    Hey Vincent!

    What I liked the most is the versatility of the programme. You are in the perfect place to explore different areas, different subjects and you have the best guidance while doing so.

    I followed another bachelor before in my home country, and the experience at Saxion was completely different. During my first bachelor it was like I had to finish a defined curriculum, while at CMGT I was 'in charge' of my future.

    As I graduated a few years ago and have some experience in the digital media industry now, I can also tell that exploring correlated areas brings you a competitive advantage in the workplace.

    As a CMGT student/graduate you'll be really pushing the boundaries of technology and creativity, while being aware of the 'limitations' of technology. You'll be able not only to come up with creative solutions to different issues, but also to implement those solutions.

    I have huge passion for Gaming,and i have Java experience. But in terms of drawing, i really don't have clue about this,will it become an barrier?
    asked 2 years, 4 months ago
    told 2 years, 4 months ago

    Not at all!
    You'll have drawing classes, but you're not expected to become a professional in this: I graduated and I still can't draw 😝
    What is more important is learning concepts such as shadow/lights, etc...
    If you're already have experience in programming and likes games, this is the study programme for you!

    Hi, I have few questions to ask; 1. When should I come to Enschede to be fully prepared and ready for the Sep intake? Can I come on the 1st of August for example? 2. Could you please explain more to me how is the semester like, regarding the subjects, studying and so on? 3. Internships paid?

    told 3 years, 9 months ago

    Hi Amin!

    It's good to arrive at least one week before the introduction, so you have time to get familiar with the city. When I started, I arrived around mid-August.

    You can get an impression of how the academic year looks like here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EV5uS067ECg&list=PLVxbxX3iRJ2TQv9VYlk8-GtFb8qxS6DpJ

    And regarding internships: It depends on the company.
    Most internships pay a (small) fee, but it depends on the agreement you make with the company.
