What to watch
Students of the Faculty of Art and Design and the Faculty of Communication have been recently involved in a large-scale consumer insight-based research programme assessing the behaviours of youth, gathering evidence to predict future habits. In addition to projects aimed to create stronger connections between business and designers, UNTAR is also initiating projects and awarenness campaigns to advocate against the varied global forms of violence against women, as well ensuring that students in all faculties are socially aware of, and have access to education regarding regional issues, in particular, around health.
