Student Exchange Program
JMC Academy offers the opportunity for students to spend one trimester abroad at Fontys University Academy for Creative Industries (ACI) in Tilburg, Netherlands. As part of the exchange, JMC Academy receives Fontys University ACI students in February each year.
The JMC exchange students study alongside others from around the world as they undertake Entertainment Business subjects offered by the Fontys Academy for Creative Industries. Entertainment Business Management students receive subject credits that are the equivalent of one full trimester of study. All subjects are delivered in English at the Tilburg campus.
This opportunity is open to Entertainment Business Management students who have completed at least two trimesters of study at JMC. Places are limited to three students per exchange. in 2017 we will run two exchanges. Study abroad grants may be available.
Interested students should contact their Head of Department or the International Services team for more information.
