About the activity

Our new Creative Work Experience programmes are a great insight into working within the creative sector, and give students the opportunity to increase their social capital and engage with professionals in the creative industry.

Over three days, students will experience the University as a creative workplace, and learn about working in the creative sector as a freelance or self-employed professional. They will learn more about employability skills applicable to creative workplaces, such as lone-working, invoicing, motivation, collaboration and time management. Students will be expected to make their own way to and from the daily sessions, dress appropriately and identify the right time to take breaks.

Students will be set a live brief to work on independently, before presenting their ideas back to an interview panel. There will also be an opportunity for students to gain feedback on their portfolio of work, and speak to current student ambassadors about their experience of studying creative courses at the University. At the end of the programme, students will be able to answer the following:

  • What does it mean to go to work in the creative industry?
  • Do I want to work in the sector?
  • Do I understand what a creative role would entail?

The programme is delivered across three days, with the second day dedicated to independent working.

This programme is available for Term 6, at either our Rochester or Canterbury campuses. If you have a group of less than 10 students who you would like to access this programme, please contact us as there are alterative opportunities available for individual students to access.
