This September, 40 new students will start classes in the Master of Digital Media (MDM) program at the Centre for Digital Media in Great Northern Way campus, Vancouver.

The 2013/2014 cohort who are coming to Vancouver from China, India, USA and Canada were awarded a total of $300,000 in scholarships, an increase of 50 per cent over the previous year.
