"Being at ANIMEX and ExpoTees was a fantastic experience. I spent 2 days in awe of the people, students and facilities at Teesside University. I came away excited that I had found my 4th CG Intern for 2018. Somebody I have been looking for from institutes all over Europe. The level of talent is world class and we are looking forward to returning in 2019!"
