    The Academy offers programmes focused on professional practice,
    dedicated to vocationally relevant education to anticipate the
    skills needs of the creative and cultural industries. Each programme
    pays close attention to fast-developing converging technologies and
    new business models in the creative industries.

    Students learn through modules taught by practitioners reflecting
    current industry 'best practice'. Expertise across a range of
    interconnected disciplines is embedded across our different
    programmes including Television and Radio Broadcast Production,
    Filmmaking and Scriptwriting, Digital Art, Commercial Music and
    Music Technology, Performance, Broadcast Journalism, Computer Games

    Recent guests to the academy include Oscar and BAFTA winners in

    international activities.

    You will be a highly motivated individual, passionate about your
    discipline and about contributing to the best possible student
    experience. You will be able to demonstrate a commitment to a
