Global Citizenship:Sarah Cluse

Sarah, collects her certificate after successfully completing her award.

We were delighted last evening to attend the Global Citizenship awards ceremony at the university’s Newton Park campus.

In the most beautiful surroundings Textile Design for Fashion and Interiors’s very own Sarah was presented with the award.

As part of her commitment to gaining the award Sarah enjoyed a period of study in Norway.
Sarah is enthusiastic about the scheme and encourages others to apply to be part of this enhancing experience.

Many many congratulations Sarah.

Erasmus Exchange/Norway

Catching up with Sarah.

We knew Sarah would love this lifestyle and way of working. We’re delighted to hear the exchange is going so well.
Working with others from around the world Sarah is contributing to a broad and varied programme run by Volda University.
Situated in a magnificent setting the university offers extracurricular like no other and Sarah is taking full advantage of that.

I am having such a wonderful time, I’m involved with a big group of friends from all over and we are planning trips! We have just come back from Trolltunga and we’re off to Oslo soon! I have seen the northern lights, and did you see the blood moon the other day? I am just constantly hiking or sewing, which is just perfect.

We couldn’t resist

In January we visited colleagues in Norway to confirm our exchange agreement and look at good practice.
They welcomed the first of our students there this month.
Thanks for letting us know of your safe arrival Sarah.
Watch out for posts from our happy(and excited) student.

We took a collection of student work over with us and while we were there we couldn’t resist photographing the pieces in this dramatic and beautiful setting.
Here are some outtakes.

Fabulous eh ?

Norway-day 1

It’s not THAT cold for day one of the International Week here at Volda University in Norway.

Really excited to be meeting with the other European Universities and strengthening our international cooperation and exchange programme
It’s always a positive move for our students to spend time living and working in other stimulating environments. We encourage students from across the world to join us too,here in the School of Art and Design in Bath UK, to experience our way of life and work ethic( yes, it is fascinating to other people!).Here’s to a stimulating time.

This time last year we visited Poland and had very sucessful meetings concerning collaborations and exchange.This year we are off to the west coast of Norway.

We will be engaged in exchange of ideas, concepts and future thinking.We will then make it all happen! Students watch this space.
