Creative Innovation and Entrepreneurship at University of Bristol - UCAS

Course options

Course summary

To thrive in a disrupted world you will need commercial acumen to realise your creative ambitions. The MA Creative Innovation and Entrepreneurship will teach you how to apply your existing creative practice to real-world business challenges. For example:

  • starting up your career and ideas in a professional-supported environment,
  • undertaking applied commercial projects in collaborative teams,
  • learning human-centred techniques for designing and developing ideas of real value.
We welcome students from any creative, arts, or humanities discipline or background who are thinking about building a career out of their practice either in existing organisations or startups. This programme shares much of its teaching with our other Innovation and Entrepreneurship programmes (MSc and MA) but has a specific focus on the creative industries and creative entrepreneurship. You will develop the high-level skills and critical competencies needed for successful organisational innovation and entrepreneurship, through a largely practice-orientated educational approach based on collaborative teamwork across disciplines and cultures. During the programme, you will get opportunities to work alongside creative businesses and agencies to develop a deep understanding of their opportunities and challenges. Bristol is a recognised hub for innovative and entrepreneurial business, being ranked within the top five best places in the UK to start-up outside of London (Startup Cities Index, 2022), and home to some of the most impactful, innovative, and creative organisations in the world.

Entry requirements

An upper second-class honours degree or international equivalent in any discipline. For applicants who are currently completing a degree, we understand that their final grade may be higher than the interim grades or module/unit grades they achieve during their studies. We will consider applicants whose interim grades are currently slightly lower than the programme's entry requirements. We may make these applicants an aspirational offer. This offer would be at the standard level, so the applicant would need to achieve the standard entry requirements by the end of their degree. Specific module requirements may still apply. We will consider applicants whose grades are slightly lower than the programme's entry requirements, if they have at least one of the following: - evidence of significant, relevant work experience; - a relevant postgraduate qualification. If this is the case, applicants should include their CV (curriculum vitae / résumé) when they apply, showing details of their relevant work experience and/or qualifications. See international equivalent qualifications on the International Office website.
