THe Details


The MA in Creative Practice offers students the opportunities to work towards both professional and academic outputs, allowing them to graduate and progress onto higher level learning and careers in relevant industry sectors. Common across both pathways are overarching learning principles which define the ways in which graduates operate in their future careers.

Practice as research forms a core thread in creative modules that explore individual areas of development. Students will be permitted the freedoms to develop through personal and critical reflection, evaluating their own training needs in respect to industry requirements.

This facilitates a personalised learning ethos, with students specialising through direct supervisions and teaching support. Projects are designed and negotiated to explore the working practices and theoretical perspectives of their chosen specialism, with students encouraged to engage with their field from the outset of study.

This allows postgraduates to emerge from their study with extensive portfolios of relevant practice, working towards developing or honing an expertise in a chosen creative field.
