Creative Ireland

With its rich cultural heritage, inspiring landscape and thriving academic, artistic and creative sectors, Ireland is the natural home for this innovative initiative. Uversity students have the opportunity to study diverse disciplines in different locations, explore and develop their creative potential, and immerse themselves in this uniquely stimulating setting. Our unique offering encourages students to express their individuality and creative difference while immersing themselves in the rich cultural surroundings of Ireland.

Personalised Learning and Mentoring

To ensure there is coherence in the overall learning pathway, Uversity assigns a personal mentor to every student. The Mentors’ role is to guide students towards the achievement of the learning objectives of the programme. Mentors encourage students to set personal, professional and artistic goals for the year, review their ambitions and action and to build a learning programme that compliments and challenges them both academically and creatively.

Uversity offer a diverse range of programmes across the spectrum of arts and each area will have a highly qualified and experienced mentor. Uversity facilitate this by drawing from a large panel of experts and appointing Mentors according to the interest areas of each student cohort. Mentors are supervised and managed by Professor Suzanne Quin, Director of Student Mentoring.

On completion of the 12 month programme, students are awarded a Master of Arts in Creative Process. Uversity is a Recognised College of the National University of Ireland.
