Until the 17 November, the ‘Centro de Artesanía de la Comunidad Valencia’, Valencia’s craftsmanship centre, will hold the exhibition entitled ‘Retorno del sentimiento’, the ‘rediscovery of feeling’; a showcase which combines 30 pieces designed by students of the Industrial Design Engineering and Product Development course at the Polytechnic University of Valencia, and made by craftsmen of different fields such as ceramics, ironwork, glass, textiles and wood.
Founded in 1987 to provide both local and foreign students with an international education based on the British curriculum, Caxton College has gone on to become a highly recognised centre of educational excellence. Together with carefully selected staff and a philosophy aimed at quantitative and qualitative excellence, it amounts not just to a first-class education but is designed to prepare young people for entry into leading universities and colleges around the world. But the Caxton College aims to do more than simply arm its students with factual knowledge and technical skills.
Berklee College of Music, whose headquarters is located in Boston, Massachusetts, recently announced that its new Valencia campus would be opening its doors in September 2012 in order to welcome students enrolled for the Master’s Degree Programme.
Apart from the formal Master’s programmes, Berklee Valencia will also offer summer schools and special courses, which will benefit talented students not only from Valencia but the whole of Spain. Berklee’s President, Roger Brown, says: “Valencia was selected for our new campus since not only is it one of the most popular destinations for students in Europe, but the city has a strong musical symphonic band tradition and is also connected to some of the richest musical cultures in the world, including Latin America, the Mediterranean and Europe, making it the ideal location.”
An agreement of cooperation was signed recently that will link Valencia’s Polytechnic with the University of Texas at San Antonio. This will make it easier for these two educational establishments to establish new programmes to facilitate the exchange of students, lecturers and ideas.
Representatives from Valencia Polytechnic, which celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2008, contacted UTSA’s Executive Vice Provost, Julius Gribou, who declared this new academic marriage a good match. Pointing out Valencia’s reputation as a centre of architectural innovation, he added, …our architecture programme, for example, can benefit by visiting the Valencia campuses and our students can see the classical and modern structures as they walk around Valencia.
Founded in 1994, Xabia International College provides a fully bilingual environment for all its students.
