There are excellent progression and employment opprtunities in the creative Industries, which comprise around 5% of the EU economy and are growing.
Having found their chosen pathway, our students specialise in one of hundreds of disciplines: architecture, product, crafts, ceramics, glass, furniture, spatial and interior design, graphic design, typography, communication, information, interface, games or digital design, advertising, moving image, animation, fashion, surface and constructed textiles, journalism, photography, publishing, web design, film production, broadcasting, radio, TV production, performance, recording, sound, publishing, music production, fine art, acting, drama, dance, stage management, costume, set design (... to name a few!).
Progression is at the heart of our work: alumni say how they valued our guidance, support and expertise when planning their next steps.
Most students progress to university or specialist art or drama schools (the creative industries are largely graduate employers). Once there, they gain the further experience, expertise and tools needed to succeed in the industry. Many go to the best courses in the country and acquire the contacts and experience needed to kickstart their careers. Others enter the workplace for which, as well as specialist knowledge and expertise, they have developed the core, transferrable employment skills needed to do well.
