Building on your own experience and background, you’ll expand your professional arts knowledge, management skills, entrepreneurial thinking and creative leadership skills. Delivered in close collaboration with leading arts organisations, we’ll provide you with the theoretical framework, appropriate skills and practical experience to meet the challenges of working in your chosen field. You’ll cover theory, critical thinking and skills development as well as gaining practical experience. You’ll analyse debates in and around culture and the arts, and apply them to contemporary practice, structures, funding and participation.
You'll be assessed by a variety of methods that may include some or all of the following across the various modules on the course:
- Reports on work-based assignments
- Research project reports
- Reflective learning and work-experience journals
- Proposal papers for projects, funding or events, business plans, or strategy documents
- Project progress reports
- Project evaluations
You will normally have a good undergraduate degree in any academic subject. You may be considered without an undergraduate degree, if you can demonstrate considerable relevant experience. You may be asked to attend an interview. If English is not your first language, you'll need to provide evidence of proficiency in the English language. The Admissions Team assesses applications individually, but for postgraduate courses we're looking for an IELTS score of between 6.0-7.0 with a minimum of 5.5 in each component (Writing, Listening, Reading and Speaking).
