Ireland: Land of Creativity - Home of Uversity.
Welcome to a radical new approach to arts education
Ireland, with its rich cultural heritage, inspiring natural landscape, thriving arts sector and flair for creative innovation, is the natural home for Uversity - a new concept in arts education.
Uversity is different because it is a collaboration of premier academic and cultural institutions across the island of Ireland that curates postgraduate and short programmes in creative and performing arts. Our academic partners provide us with a vast array of modules at Masters level and our students curate their own customized Master’s degree, choosing where and what to study under the guidance of creative mentors. Our arts and culture partners provide immersive experiences in arts practice providing students unrivalled access to practising artists and artistic and cultural events.
Currently Uversity offers one postgraduate degree, the MA in Creative Process which is a one year 90 ECTS credit programme. Uversity also offers a range of short immersive programmes in theatre, literature, visual communications and material culture. Our range of programmes is constantly evolving and a full list can be viewed on the Uversity website at www.uversity.org
