CCI alumni - get involved!

Over the last year we have developed some new Masters courses and September 2015 saw us welcoming students on to the new MRes Creative Industries, MSc Film and Television and MA Illustration courses. 

Currently I am working with the School of Art and Design on an MA Photography, an MA Data Visualisation Design and an MA Fashion and Textiles, all of which we hope to have available to new students in September 2016.

If your New Year resolution is to continue with your studies, you'll be interested to hear you may be entitled to the new postgraduate loan.
