About us

Welcome to the School of Creative and Cultural Industries, a vibrant community of multidisciplinary makers, content producers, performers, writers, scholars and storytellers grounded in creative practice and humanities.  
The School is part of Bristol’s creative ecosystem, with outstanding facilities at City Campus – where our sector-leading creative courses in Drama, Filmmaking, Animation, Photography, Media Production and Journalism are based – and UWE Bristol's Frenchay Campus, where we offer a range of stimulating, innovative and research-informed courses in transnational humanities, including English Literature, English Language and Linguistics, Creative and Professional Writing, History, Film Studies, and Media Communications. 
Our students are partners and co-creators in their own learning, designing and directing their studies. Each course embeds themes of environmental sustainability, social justice, equality, diversity and inclusivity in its curriculum. We put real-world experience and applied research at the heart of our programmes, so our students develop employability and enterprising career skills along the way. 
With strong ties to Bristol’s creative and cultural sectors plus active alumni, you’ll study and start exploring your future opportunities, building your professional networks in one of the UK’s most dynamic cities.
