Body text

We're committed to providing high quality progression programmes to our network of schools, colleges and outreach partners.

Our focus is to provide learners with information, advice and guidance (IAG) about the creative industries, and an insight into what it's like to study at a specialist creative university. Our primary objective is to support the next generation to progress and succeed within the creative industries.

Our partnership offer can provide:

  • Talks and presentations from our academics and student ambassadors, covering: our course offer, the creative industries and graduate/alumni stories, student life and advice on how to apply.

  • Subject specific workshops and masterclasses
  • Holiday schools at Easter and Summer
