QMU IT: Digital Experience Festival 2019

By Megan 21 Oct 2019

IT Services held their first ever Digital Festival at the start of term. The Festival, which included an enhanced and immersive programme of digital induction and digital support during the two week induction period, ran from the 9th - 20th September 2019 and was open to and attended by new and returning students and staff. This has been seen by all who attended as a great success which we will look to build on in the future.
