Newport, Gwent, United Kingdom, 2011/04/04 - For the Fifth Consecutive year Dischromatics is hosting a French student Caroline Leroy in a continuing partnership with French Universities - Dischromatics.co.uk.
Dischromatics already has close ties to the University of Wales newly opened Newport Campus and recently attended the opening ceremony of which they were sponsors. The opening hosted by Jamie Baulch and Christian Malcolm, was officially undertaken by Honorary Fellow, Sir Terry Matthews, the owner of the Celtic Manor Hotel which played host to the successful 2010 Ryder Cup Golf tournament.
Just prior to Christmas Dischromatics took the opportunity to sponsor another event of benefit to local students during the Skillset Media Academy Wales Student Welcome Event. The company was pleased to supply free handouts to students which included printed and packaged blank DVD-R’s for personal use.
With regards to our ‘French Connection’, this is the fifth year we have welcomed foreign students for short term placement. Caroline Leroy is the latest French student to be hosted by Dischromatics for a six week ‘stage’, in agreement with the University of Auvergne. Caroline lives close to the campus where she attends her classes. She is studying General Management in the Institute of Professional Management and Business Administration. Now in her second year of studies, she lives with her parents and two older brothers.
The University of Auvergne consists of eight faculties and Institutes and was created in 1991. There are fifteen thousand students of which three thousand are from countries outside of France.
Dischromatics which was formed in 1989, supplies a diverse range of products and services from CD, DVD and Blu-ray Replication along with CD Duplication and DVD Duplication. DVD and Blu-ray Authoring. Graphic Design, digital printing and fulfilment and is proud of its association with and support for the students and Universities both in this country and France and now Germany. They supply product to many European countries and especially France.
Whilst at Dischromatics, Caroline will be enhancing her command of English and learning more about company management, although a large part of her time will be occupied with bringing the French version of the company website up to the same level as the English version. As can be seen by the company’s diverse range of products and services, this will be quite a test. Search Engine Optimization of the site will be included in her brief.
On June 20th The Company will welcome a student from Germany, from the Schulze-Delitzsh-Schule in Wiesbaden, her name is Alissa Fuselier who is 18 years of age, and Alissa has already spent some time studying in Melbourne.
Managing Director Gareth Spencer who is a graduate of Cardiff University empathises with students working abroad as he himself spent two years in Nevers in France as part of his degree course and is now fluent in French. Gareth explains “When I first arrived in France, I found it difficult at first to keep up with some of the conversations, naturally the local dialect and slang was much in evidence and it took me quite some time to adapt, I had a placement working as a language student in one of the local schools teaching English to French pupils and played rugby for Nevers rugby club. So I fully understand the apprehension these students may have.”
Dischromatics (dischromatics.co.uk) expects to continue its relationship with local and foreign universities and accepting foreign students for short term placement. The Management and Staff of the Company are committed to this exercise and feel that not only have the students benefited from the experience but the company itself generally has been enriched by this positive cultural exchange.
