We've got a preview for you of the new facilities that have been taking shape at Queen Alex over the summer…The Creative Studios.

You may have already noticed the sleek new sign above the entrance to the art and design block, but that's just the beginning.

The Creative Studios is a new, high-tech home for art, design and media courses both at Queen Alex and TyneMet.

One of the best bits is the new MacRoom on the first floor. It's packed with the very latest kit in ultra-modern, sleek surroundings. (see pics)

The message is - 'We're investing in new facilities and technology so students can invest in their futures'.

Watch out for details of a formal opening in a few weeks time.
