Welcome and thank you for choosing our post-graduate course. The School of Creative Arts and Industries is a vibrant and diverse centre for teaching and research in the broader subject area, offering a variety of undergraduate and postgraduate courses. We are a leading force in research at the university where nearly 90% of research was recognised as world leading or internationally significant and we expect to build on those successes in the coming years. In addition to our research activities, we maintain close links with networks of local and international organisations through our sponsorship of the Canterbury Festival, links with the Canterbury Cathedral, Turner Contemporary and collaboration with Screen South, Maidstone Studios, and the Marlowe Theatre.
