Norwich University of the Arts is committed to helping its students become successful graduates, as well as supporting the creative industries. Thatโ€™s why we created the Ideas Factory at NUA.

Situated close to the heart of the NUA campus, the Ideas Factory is a modern office space designed to provide room for digital startups to grow. Itโ€™s home to graphic designers, photographers, digital product designers, film makers, animators, illustrators, writers and UX specialists, many of them NUA graduates.

Unique creative community

Working alongside like-minded creative businesses offers exciting opportunities to collaborate and create networks of creative talent.

A programme of events, run exclusively for businesses based in the Ideas FactoryNUA, is tailored to the needs of digital startups, offering specialist support and one-to-one advice, as well as guidance on practical issues like finance and tax, business planning and marketing.
