ALUMNI FEEDBACK

"It was so easy to combine work and school, as well as my own personal projects. In 2020, I became a musician and wow, this network really helped me. Chase has always been supportive of me."

April Maey
Alumnus & Musician

I really enjoyed my time studying the postgraduate. You're able to meet so many new and inspiring people who are really engaged and motivated about telling stories.

Lucas
Alumnus & Immersive Storyteller

"I wanted to improve my digital skills so that I would feel more confident before starting work. During my internship at the Sportpaleis Group, they discovered that I am multi-functional in terms of video, audio, text, photography, and so on. That's why they eventually offered me a job."

Luka
Alumnus

"Chase gave me the opportunity to come into very close contact with other creators for the first time and exchange ideas during exciting workshops. I was able to make contacts and gain experience, which was the perfect stepping stone for my current career."

Jonathan Vanooteghem

Alumnus & Social Media Officer Belgian Red Devils / Red Flames

Choosing the postgraduate really felt like an investment in my future. On top of all the interesting lectures of digital creatives in the field, I got to learn so much from working with all the other students with super varied academic backgrounds and talents.

Lara Decrae

Alumnus, now at Ancienne Belgique

As a film student, the Digital Storytelling post-graduation showed me why there are sometimes other, and even better ways to tell your story than film.  I learned storytelling techniques I had never heard of, but also techniques I had long forgotten. It's best to have them all in your backpack and then pick the best one for the story you want to tell.
