Art & Design Students Head To University

A group of Queen Alex students are heading straight to university rather than having to complete a foundation course because their work is of such a high standard.

It's very unusual for this to happen in art and design 'A' level courses and staff and students at Queen Alex are delighted that lots of hard work has paid off.

Kimberley Brown is going to Northumbria University to study BA (Hons) Animation and Design. She says: "I was quite surprised I got in straightaway. After university, I'd like a career in film or game animation."

Politicians Questioned By Students

With just a few days to the general election, Queen Alex and TyneMet students put their questions to some of the candidates hoping to become MP for Tynemouth by the end of the week.

The Question Time event was hosted by Real Radio presenter, Jonathan Morrell who has quizzed quite a few politicians in his time on both radio and TV, including Sky News and ITN.

The panel was made up of Labour's Alan Campbell, Julia Erskine from the Green Party, Wendy Morton for the Conservatives and Natasha Payne from UKIP.

Grand Designs

We've got a preview for you of the new facilities that have been taking shape at Queen Alex over the summer…The Creative Studios.

You may have already noticed the sleek new sign above the entrance to the art and design block, but that's just the beginning.

The Creative Studios is a new, high-tech home for art, design and media courses both at Queen Alex and TyneMet.

One of the best bits is the new MacRoom on the first floor. It's packed with the very latest kit in ultra-modern, sleek surroundings. (see pics)
