School of Arts & Creative Industries Work placements, projects & events
We partner our students with industry and community organisations to create enriching work-based projects.

Connecting creative talent with industry and community 

The School of Arts & Creative Industries has employability at the heart of all our programmes. We believe in working with the creative industries and community organisations to create opportunities and build partnerships, sharing experiences and talent through work placements, projects and events.

These programmes develop the skills of our students and bring fresh ideas to projects across the following subject areas: 

Acting | Communications | English | Design | Film | Journalism | Music | Photography | Television

As our work continues to grow, we are always seeking new opportunities to give our talented students the chance to showcase their abilities in working environments.

We host a range of employability events throughout the year to support learning and provide networking opportunities.
