Creative industries

The creative industries are the fastest growing sector of the UK economy and are expected to generate up to one million new jobs by 2030.

Our new Institute of Cultural and Creative Industries will support this by bringing a diverse and exciting community of academics and students together with a shared a passion for creative ideas. Working across sciences, social sciences, arts and humanities, we will give students the skills to join the creative industries while helping drive local cultural and economic growth.
