Hyper Island started in 1995 when Jonathan Briggs, David Erixon and Lars Lundh met during a project involving a CD-rom production. They soon realized the increasing need of a different kind of education involving industry based learning, for the growing new media industry. The first long term program at Hyper Island started in Karlskrona 1996 with 32 students.
Since the start in 1996, the methodology of Hyper Island has been a true success. Today, Hyper Island offers long term programs in Karlskrona (Sweden), Stockholm (Sweden) & Manchester, UK. In total around 400 students study full time at Hyper Island’s campuses each year
Furthermore, Hyper Island works with leadership-, team- and individual development towards the private and the public sector. Hyper Island has also been involved in several exciting external projects, such as setting up a two-year Management program in Prishtina, Kosovo together with the Olof Palme International Center and IPKO Institute.
Our priority is to create a unique learning environment, build relationship with the interactive/digital industry and to manage the team building, course coordination and student development.
