About

It is impossible to describe this Arts and Creative Technologies course at Staffordshire University, because it is different for every single student. You are the person who decides what you want to do (as long as it’s at a postgraduate level of study).

All you need to get started is a project that you want to tackle over the course. This could be a book or film project, it could be compiling a portfolio targeted for a specific job, it could be work for an exhibition or it could be something you always wanted to find out more about (and these are just a few examples).

Armed with your proposal we will find you a subject-specific mentor, who will help you put together a Learning Contract, which is your own bespoke course design, which will allow you to complete your project. You can use your own experience and interests to explore a subject through work-experience. You can also use the university resources –whether it be teaching and research expertise or workshop facilities or the library – to help you. You even pick your own title for the course.

Most of the content of this award is up to you. There are two shared core modules, in which you design your Learning Contract and learn about research methods, and everything else is negotiated by you.

Employment opportunities

The Award will qualify you to embark on further academic study at PhD level or move into a creative environment in the commercial and employment sector depending on the discipline followed.
