Student Experience

Belfast and Northern Ireland are home to arts organisations leading in areas of community engagement. Lecturers work closely with students to ensure that their involvement with the modules and assessments on the Programme connect directly with their personal learning needs. 

We provide a welcoming environment for both local and international students. Students are supported and encouraged to socialise and attend local arts events together. We take intercultural education very seriously on the MA in Arts Management and believe that students on the MA can learn from one another as well as from their tutors and lecturers on the course.

Students have a unique opportunity to meet and work with artists studying on other MA pathways in the School.
