Careers and work experience

The creative industries move fast. We move even faster. Kickstart your career with work experience opportunities you won’t find anywhere else.

Our degree courses may give you the raw skills and knowledge to get your foot in the door, but if you’re serious about making it in the industry, it’s your experiences outside the classroom that make the difference.

As you take your first steps in the industry, we’ll be there to support you every step of the way. Our Careers Teams have a contact list spanning hundreds of labels, booking agents, production companies, festivals and much more. The companies we work with trust us to provide them with the talent they need while you get opportunities you won’t find anywhere else.

Ready to boost your creative career?
