Face-to-face events

Our optional face-to-face events not only provide the opportunity to meet with your online peers and faculty in person, but offer distinctive cultural and creative experiences of their own.  

Just a few examples - our MA and BA Top-Up Photography cohorts have attended a wide variety of international photography festivals, our MA Creative App Development students visited Agile on the Beach in Cornwall and the MA Creative Events Management cohort experienced the Christmas Markets in Berlin.  

As an online student you will be given the opportunity to attend up to two events per academic year. Events will usually take place over a weekend to accommodate busy schedules. 

During the current pandemic our events are moving online, but still include the insights from academics and industry experts and collaborations with fellow students that make them special.
