Studying at Mediapolis
High technology and a sense of community are "in the air" at Mediapolis, and form an excellent setting for studying media. Students can build the foundations of their own professional growth by creating contents for different media in a high-energy environment. Students also have excellent opportunities to establish important contacts with companies operating under the same roof. The best known of the companies which use the Mediapolis facilities is Finland's national public service broadcasting company (Yle).
Promoting openness and a sense of community has been taken into consideration in the spatial planning of the Mediapolis facilities; it is easy to establish valuable contacts even in a coffee break.
