Qualifications required:

  • An Honours degree (or evidence of equivalent experience) and a minimum of 2 years’ work experience in the arts, design, performance or creative business management and administration sectors. The course will not recruit those progressing directly from undergraduate degrees. We anticipate that the course will also appeal to candidates with business management and administration backgrounds whose careers have led to direct engagement with creative processes and events or who wish to move into the cultural and creative sectors. Applicants whose 1st language is not English require IELTS 7.0 with a minimum of 6.0 in all papers, or equivalent. Applicants who have booked a test or are awaiting their results, should clearly indicate this on their application form.
