and Professional Practice
Wherever you are on your creative journey we’re here to help you take the next step.
You’ll work alongside practising artists and industry leaders when you study with us, and our Careers Advisors will help you to set out on a career that is just right for you. Our Advisors will share their in-depth knowledge and experience of the creative sectors, they'll show you how to make the most of your industry contacts and they'll be there for you when you take that leap into industry.
And even after you’ve graduated you can still access our online resources, live events, and bookable one-to-one sessions to help you plan your next move.
