    A Masters degree designed for creative students who want to study in the heart of London.

    The MA Creative Entrepreneurship is the first and only course of its kind in the UK, offering creative practitioners the opportunity to sustain their current work independently, while learning to deploy their creativity and develop new contexts for working, including London showcases and placements in arts and business organisations.

    The MA is flexible and responsive to your needs through an extensive programme supported by over 20 specialist visitors, reflecting the aspirations of each cohort of students. The course defines the artist as a creative entrepreneur who is able to sustain independent arts practice in the light of 21st century challenges. A unique feature is the development of your own personal arts plan to navigate a professional creative future.

    The following will be offered to help your studies:

    • Visiting speakers from the UK creative community, including the Arts Council.
    • Seminars and talks by publishers, curators, and collectors.
    • Taught sessions on two days every week.

    You will also study the following modules:

    Resources for the Arts

    • This module addresses the opportunities to generate resources for the Arts with a review of the current funding structures open to creative entrepreneurs.

    Key Roles and Playmakers

    • A series of invited visitors introduce the leading roles and functions undertaken by individuals and organisations in the cultural sector.

    Artists and Contemporary Practice

    • Visiting established contemporary artists, writers and musicians present their career and professional work experience and discuss and review students' existing work followed by a series of visits to progress the students' individual creative activity.

    Technical and Professional Briefings

    • A series of briefings by specialists from the key professions covering functions relating to creative entrepreneurial practice, including IT, finance, legal, communications and marketing.


    • You will either submit an academic dissertation of no more than 10,000 words or a creative project developed during the course, together with a contextualising commentary of 3,000 to 5,000 words in which you demonstrate an understanding of the relationship of issues raised by the course to your own work.

    The Arts Plan

    • You will undertake an individual five-year arts plan supported by tutorials which initially addresses your current position and assumptions as related to an historical context supported by research and analysis.
