Welcome to the School of Media and Performing Arts. Our teaching is underpinned by scholarship, innovative pedagogy, and leading research of national and international significance. In a broad and exciting portfolio of programmes ranging from English Language to Dance, we emphasise creativity, practical experience and the interrelation of practice and theory alongside the development of high level specialist and transferable skills, preparing graduates for work in the contemporary creative industries. Our industry-standard facilities enable students and researchers to shape their disciplines using the most relevant equipment and technology, with full technical support. Collaboration is encouraged and supported at every level, across disciplines, organisations, structures and cultures.
Our work not only reflects, but through our graduates' employment and our staff engagement in consultancy and collaborative research, directly shapes the media and performance sectors. Industry links ensure that our curriculum, our facilities and our research remain at the leading edge of these fast-changing disciplines.
