Masters in Entrepreneurship for Creative Practice
This Masters programme is for highly motivated creative practitioners and graduates who want to use the course as a catalyst to accelerate their existing practice, find a fresh direction or start a new creative enterprise. It is structured to deliver concrete outcomes that can immediately be applied to your practice, rigorously testing your critical and entrepreneurial awareness. The course prepares you for the fast changing entrepreneurial landscape as we re-define the traditional boundaries, perceptions and definitions of the ‘entrepreneur’ for the 21st Century.
Full time study (1 year) requires a commitment to a minimum of two days in college plus your own studio practice and self directed study to meet assignment requirements. Part time study (21 months) requires a minimum of one day in college plus your own studio practice and self directed study to meet assignment requirements.
Normally a first degree upper second class standard (2.1) in an Art, Design and/or Media discipline is required. Applicants with Accredited Prior Learning (APL) credits from previous qualifications and equivalent experience as a professional in creative practice (Accredited Prior Experiential Learning-APEL) are also considered as alternative fulfilment of the requirements. In all cases, prospective students must demonstrate their capability of studying at postgraduate level.
