Our programme of guest professionals brings diversity, internationalisation and extra interest to your studies and your creative work. 

We pride ourselves on the way we connect the life of our University with what’s happening in industry. As part of this, we invite leading talent from local, national and international creative and cultural industries to come and share their experiences with our students. 

These professionals are willing to take time out of their busy schedules because they’re happy to invest in our students. They understand that their input helps to spark ideas for your work as well as providing that real-life perspective to help you plan your future career. 

We invite a broad cross-section of people to reflect our many different programme areas. While they’re with us, they might:

  • Deliver inspiring lectures
  • Facilitate smaller seminars or workshops
  • Discuss your creative work with you
  • Provide advice on how to find the right job & build your career
  • Talk about setting up your own business. 

Many of the guests’ sessions are filmed, and the recordings can be found on the students’ eStudio and in the library.
