Practical opportunities in Arts and Culture
Skills development and employability are central to studying at UWE Bristol. Our focus on real-world experience means that employers know that our graduates are mature, skilled and prepared for an exciting career in cultural and creative industries.
Local and global connections
Our relationship with the city is vibrant and exciting – just like Bristol itself. We have strong relationships with organisations such as the BBC and M Shed so you’ll develop your skills and build your network of professional connections.
You will have the opportunity to get involved in cultural events including:
- The Bristol Festival of Ideas
- Bristol’s Food Connections Festival
- The Bristol Radical Film Festival
- The Bristol Shakespeare Festival
- The Encounters Short Film and Animation Festival.
On campus you can join the English Society and the Film Society, which host a range of events, including open mic nights and film screenings. And the range of student media here at UWE Bristol means you can contribute in a number of ways to titles including the Cellar Door, UWE BRISTOL Lingo, the Western Eye and Hub Radio.
As well as local connections, you'll also have the opportunity to travel further afield and can apply to study at Virginia Commonwealth University in the USA.
