The School of Digital Arts, Manchester Metropolitan University
Opening in 2021, the School of Digital is a £35m investment into the workspaces, facilities, networks, teaching and research that will drive the next generation of creative content.
Our students will study disciplines that span film, animation, UX design, photography, games design, AI and more, often working on live projects with industry partners, frequently collaborating with fellow students and researchers. And a programme of pioneering research will run in parallel, informing our teaching and generating answers to the most challenging questions posed by digital media and technology.
The School will to respond to developments in screen and post-screen technologies, to changes in how we discover, consume and share film, drama, games, image-based and other creative content, to the skills gaps faced by media, tech, digital, broadcast and content companies, and to the needs of a rising generation of creatives – young, talented and diverse students who occupy the space where storytelling, content and technology converge.
