Cambridge School of Creative Industries is a creative community like no other – innovative, experimental and collaborative.
Here are just a few great reasons to study with us.
All our facilities are available to all our students
Shoot your own music video in our industry-standard t.v. studio and film editing suites, or create a soundtrack for your game in our digital music editing and recording suites. Whatever your course of study, you'll still have access to all our facilities – with full training provided. Make something fantastic!
We're based in Cambridge, city of creativity
With 18% of the UK computer games industry (source: nesta.org), a thriving music scene from UK rap to classical, and organisations including Cambridge Junction, Cambridge University Press, Cambridge Arts Theatre, and Cambridge Arts Picturehouse, you'll find yourself surrounded by creativity, with plenty of chances to show off your own and build up a public following, as well as a network of contacts for your future career.
You'll be in exceptional company, alongside professionally recognised and award-winning students and graduates
These include Theo Douchard, Alessandro Piccato and Alina Boblinova, who all won prizes at the 2018 Royal Television Society East Awards; Anthony Rubery, NMG's Best Male Solo Artist of 2018; and MA Creative Writing alumnus Natalya Anderson, who won The Moth magazine's poetry competition in 2018, her second international prize.
Our lecturers' CVs are stuffed with industry experience, as well as research and teaching
You'll learn from people who have made a real impact in their chosen fields. You might study creative writing with a lecturer who's appeared on the New York Times' bestseller list; learn about documentary-making with a former BBC director, or get guitar tips from a musician who's performed and recorded with the likes of Kylie Minogue and Jamiroquai.
We'll help you find everything you need to achieve your ideal career
Our lecturers, employability service and Anglia Ruskin Enterprise Academy are all here to help you find your way to a creative future. Our courses all include modules that will give you the practical skills to set yourself up in business, and you can test and develop your ideas in the supportive environment of our StartupLab. Recent students have enjoyed placements and work experience with big-name businesses including Penguin Books, Frontier Developments, BBC and Warner Bros. We also host industry-specific events such as high-profile film industry talks and the fastest growing games festival in the UK, Brains Eden.
