Linking with industry

With a focus on the development of talent, skills, innovation and research opportunities, we work with partners across both established and emerging businesses, and welcome new challenges and approaches.

Industry collaborations, briefs and live projects, work experience, research and professional development are key elements of courses connecting with the creative and digital sectors, developing the skills to meet the demands and practices of a global market.

Businesses we work with benefit from student talent and insight; many use this as a route to recruitment.

Locally, we are a partner of the Nottingham Creative Quarter (CQ), an economic development initiative located within the city centre. The CQ was set up to attract and support the growth of Nottingham’s creative and digital businesses, providing opportunity and expertise for student and graduate development.
