Faculty of Culture and Creative Industries

Welcome to the Faculty of Culture and Creative Industries. Our vision is to produce creative, reflective, work-ready graduates who benefit from our enviable links with industry and world-leading research-informed teaching.

Being part of our Faculty also gives you extra benefits beyond your academic study to help you realise your ambitions. As one of our students you can:

  • Make a bid to our student-led cross-faculty project fund.
  • Experience a new culture by studying abroad.
  • Gain official Microsoft accreditations.
  • Network with industry professionals as part of our public lecture series.

And that’s just the start! Our students and staff work creatively and collaboratively across an exciting range of disciplines to open up new avenues to explore and new opportunities for learning. This has been recognised in both 2016 and 2018 when the Faculty was awarded the coveted Times Higher Education award for Excellence and Innovation in the Arts. It’s a great time to be part of our Faculty. Please explore what we have to offer and thank you for visiting!
