Course Overview

A distinctive feature of this programme is the opportunity for students to apply their studies directly to their own professional and creative activities, whether in an existing industry role or context or through a new business start-up initiative.

Part-time delivery facilitated through distance-learning will enable students to balance their studies with professional commitments, offering a flexible approach to accommodate a wide range of individual backgrounds.

Access to studios, professional equipment and other physical resources will be available on campus, but the programme will primarily be facilitated through a comprehensive e-learning environment that will support remote learning online.

This programme is designed to accommodate applicants working, or intending to work, in the creative industries. It will furnish you with the requisite skills in business and entrepreneurship to support an effective and informed approach to succeeding in your chosen area within the creative industries.

If you have the existing creative drive and technical skills, this programme will support you to successfully apply them in a professional context.
