Michelle Menten, Student 2017/2018:
"This minor was the perfect addition to my current studies in Germany. Besides my basic content marketing knowledge, I learned to create a brilliant content marketing campaign for an actual company. We gained not only knowledge on how ‘killer content’ should be, but we actually created all the content by our own. My theoretical skills were extended by a lot of practical skills in Photography & Photoshop, InDesign & Illustrator, Camera & Video Editing, Budgets & Analytics and some skills like writing. Tor this purpose, the University of Saxion has great opportunities because they provide a lot of equipment, nice working spaces and has great lecturers who teach you in a very relaxed atmosphere."

Lea Wieser, Student 2017/2018:
"I choose this minor because I wanted to extend my theoretical knowledge with some more practical activities. The minor is perfect if you want to improve your practical skills. To create the best killer content we got to know the Adobe programs like photoshop, InDesign etc. My personal highlight was the video editing class where we got to know how to work with a 4k camera and film properly. The university provides all the modern material which is needed to make the most out of your Erasmus."
