‘UP! North’ 12/13 March 2016
Once again, ‘Up Your Output!’ invites audio students and recent graduates from all around the world to learn and network while making friends and having a good time.
For its fourth instalment ‘UP!’ leaves the capital to become a travelling event and head ‘UP! North’. The University of York is proud to host this year’s edition of one of Europe’s most relevant audio student events. With over a 2000 year history, York is one of the UK’s most beautiful and historic cities and an excellent travel destination for students from within and outside the UK.
‘UP! North’ keeps up the spirit in which ‘Up Your Output!’ was founded and offers a two day programme of lectures and workshops and gives students the opportunity to get in touch with representatives of world renowned audio companies.
Please bear in mind that there are limited places available and registration will be required. This event is strictly for AES Student Members and will be FREE to attend. Due to many requests in the past three years, registration is open also to recent graduates (within 2 years of course completion date). Tickets will be issued on the basis of ‘First come, first served’.
