It seems that only 28% of you have yet completed the National Student Survey. This is an important exercise for MTI and the university in general. If you have positive feelings towards your studies to date, please express them through the survey. If you have suggestions to how MTI can best develop moving forward in the future beyond your graduation this year, please also take this opportunity - feedback from our students is essential for us. It won't take long and can be done online (I'm sure IPSO/MORI have already emailed you at least once about this!!!).

MSHR's live performances currently revolve around a unique system of light-audio feedback that employs hand made synthesizers and sculptural interfaces. The duo insert themselves into the system, sitting in the centre of the array and steering the feedback patterns by shifting sculptural sensors.
Talk on Friday the 21st at Phoenix from 6.
Live performance on Saturday the 22nd at Two Queens Gallery (2queens.com) -- a warehouse gallery and studio complex in the cultural quarter which is very close to Phoenix. There will be drinks, starting from 7.
Note that this is focused on 'taught postgrad' study, and thus it won't include MTI's postgrad study programmes, which are independent/research degrees. We will hold a different information session in the near future for 3rd-year students interested in pursuing postgraduate with MTI.
