The School is at the forefront of University-wide curriculum innovation through industry partnerships. The Digital and Creative ‘Industry Collaboration Zone’ supports partnerships and projects with the creative industries across the region and nationally, which inform the curriculum, enrich the student experience and enhance employment opportunities.
