You will learn to analyze, evaluate, and produce projects within VR / AR / XR and other immersive media with regard to technical design, content, design language, visual trends, and target group. Theoretical knowledge is combined with practical exercises in storytelling, scripting, and narrative for immersive media.
The focus is on knowledge in the fast-growing immersive sector, on the possibilities of the medium, and on the recipient’s perception and cognition. You gain knowledge in analyzing results within the medium, in order to be able to determine whether they correspond to the requirements set by the end user and the customer. This also includes knowledge of strategy for productions that is linked directly to the target group and the business benefits.
To succeed as an immersive creator, you need knowledge of how to pitch ideas, create visual presentations, conduct customer meetings, and workshops. The training gives you knowledge of different technical formats, playback, delivery, and storage.
LIA (lärande i arbete), also known as internship is a part of the program. The practical part of your internship/LIA deepens your learning and provides you with the work experience required to develop today’s and tomorrow’s immersive experiences. You will also get the opportunity to build your network and create relationships with future employers in the duration of the program.
Most semesters are of different durations, and it is important that you report the correct time period and the correct YH points to CSN. Each study week corresponds to five (5) yh-points, i.e. each day corresponds to one (1) yh-point, provided that you continuously pass your modules with approved results.
Open for late applications until July 31.

The applicants with the highest score, regardless of location, will be offered a seat to the program, and other eligible applicants will be in our wait list.
Work Sample – What to submit?
A short story that you have created, and would like to develop into an immersive experience.
The format for your story is free choice. It could be a script, storyboards, a video or animation, audio, flat or 360 photo/video, moodboards, concept art, light projections, LARP-setup, live performance or a 3D world / environment in a virtual venue like Mozilla Hubs, VR-chat etc. Or any combination.
In short, anything that shows your initiative and view of storytelling in immersive narrative formats.
What to Showcase?
Your work sample should be focused on describing your view of immersive storytelling and showcase the field you would like to explore. However, you can always add your portfolio or mention other ideas you have worked on in the last paragraph of the document you submit.
It doesn’t have to be a polished ready-to-be-released experience. Prototype or a concept will do just fine!
Format for work sample submission
Maximum five (5) pages.
Save in PDF format.
Name the file [firstname_surname.pdf].
Make sure any links to third-party or other services (Mozilla hubs, Vimeo, Shapes XR, etc.) are accessible and made available to un-registered users.
Is prior tech knowledge mandatory?
Producing immersive experiences requires some knowledge of the techniques on how to make them, (or why they don’t work) so it is preferable to have some sort of technical knowledge, but it is not a requirement.
There are no specific requirements for any software. You can use the software that best suits your needs, for now.
Most importantly is your intention, that you have started looking into how to explore immersive experiences or how to create them.
You will receive an offer letter via our admission system around early July 2022.
You will then need to confirm your acceptance within seven (7) days to keep your seat or reserve status.
If the school does not receive your confirmation within seven (7) days, we will automatically offer it to the next applicant on our wait list.
