At NUA our students’ creative futures are very important to us. We nurture their natural talents in an environment which has the latest equipment and technologies – a space where they can develop their unique artistic language; helping them to become the very best creatives they can be.
We combine this learning with an advanced employability programme where students develop a career ‘Profile’. When our students reach graduation, they are ready to hit the ground running, making hiring them an easy decision for future employers.
We could not provide this level of learning and development for our students without the support of our best ambassadors and that of course is you, the Alumni Community. We continually work closely with our alumni who are in a position to offer work placements, internships, mentoring and networking opportunities to our students. This support allows us to provide our students with real life working examples of being a creative in the world of work.
Our alumni enjoy giving back and helping our students find their feet in the creative industries. If you would like to work with our students, we look forward to hearing from you.
Life-long learning is something NUA takes seriously. We want to enrich our alumni community with information on the latest developments, topics, technologies and polices within the creative industries. We draw upon our alumni community to educate each other and our student community through a variety of activities. These include research seminars, lectures, workshops, reunions, group exhibitions.
We are extremely proud of the breadth of knowledge that runs through our alumni community and we welcome all alumni who would like to get involved. Please get in touch if you would like to be part of the conversation.
