Entry requirements

We currently require an initial degree in a relevant subject, classified as First Class or 2:1, or evidence of recent activity in the subject equivalent to these classifications as determined by interview.

Overseas students can submit their portfolio and statement of intent digitally if they are unable to visit the university in person. This will then be followed up by a virtual face to face interview via, Skype, TEAMs, Zoom or equivalent.

All applicants are expected to hold a good and relevant initial degree, or provide a portfolio of their own work, demonstrating equivalence to an initial degree.

Course content

As growth in the sector continues, the creative industries offer many thriving career opportunities. We have developed this course to equip you with a balance of research, analytical and innovative skills ready for employment within the chosen area of your art practice. The multi-disciplinary, interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary focus of your learning will evolve with an ethos of nurturing a sustainable society, featuring environmental, social, moral and ethical considerations. You will be presented with a range of new and evolving opportunities to develop your practice within a thriving, international, creative community. The course allows postgraduates to specialise in their chosen subject specialism, but also facilitates the cross-disciplinary “conversations” between the subjects, as postgraduate artists and designers meet regularly in their dedicated base room - for critiques, presentations and briefings. Practice is embedded within the specialist studio workshops at Regent Street, within the university’s Creative Industries Building. Students will have the opportunity to hear from invited speakers through Creative Futures and Big Ideas Wales. While you study with us, you will gain greater insight into writing for publication, posters and journals, as well as other essential business knowledge. This will be led by our professionally active staff who will transform your development with their knowledge and experience.

This programme has been developed to respond to the changing face of art, the creative industries and incorporates the collaborative interdisciplinary practice from WU researchers into socially engaged practice. Our staff will support and encourage you to find internships and work placements with local and regional organisations. You will learn creative management techniques and important business principles to underpin your creative and imaginative progress, which will help to prepare you for a career after the course is completed. Your learning will include understanding and engaging with contemporary practices, issues, technologies and exhibits. Form part of our vibrant international creative community with staff committed to nurturing your potential, ready for you to take your talent to the next level.Our professionally active staff will transform your learning, using their own knowledge and experience of participating and engaging in expositions, industry-related events, conferences and publications. The research activities of our team are close to the course curriculum and will encourage innovative practice and professional networking.
