Expenses, accommodation, working etc. 


Sheffield may be one of the best places in the UK to take a course like this.

The percentage of people working in the creative industries here is much higher than the national average. We have the best theatre scene outside London, the largest independent cinema, and galleries with links to the Tate and the V&A.

Of course, we maintain close relationships with the key players. Visits to various organisations are an integral part of the course. And many of our students volunteer in the sector.

The course, which includes field trips and guest lecturers from the industries, provides general training in management with the emphasis on understanding and managing creative enterprises and cultural organisations.

When you graduate, you’ll also qualify for the Chartered Management Institute’s Advanced Diploma in Management
