Employability

Our aim is to produced talented, well-rounded, and original graduates who are fully equipped to launch successful careers within a variety of design and creative industries.

The School of Design and Creative Arts is proud to nurture long-standing professional partnerships with a range of different employers and industry powerhouses, which our students and graduates are encouraged and guided to take advantage of.

From work experience opportunities and paid year-long industry placements to live briefs, competitions and in-built skills development modules, our students are exposed to countless opportunities to develop their employability. The hands-on nature of our teaching means that not only do students get a thorough grounding in theoretical learning, they are also capable of (and experienced in) producing professional-standard practical work.

This paired with the abundant opportunities to network with industry professionals places our graduates amongst some of the most employable in the UK (Top 5 in the UK for graduate prospects, The Times Good University Guide 2021.) In addition we have exchange agreements in place with a number of overseas universities, at which students can study at for part of their degree.
