NUA graduates go on to lead highly successful careers in their chosen field of the arts. Students are encouraged to build a distinctive portfolio that will set them apart from other graduates competing for jobs.
Students will be able to use tools such as Profile, an innovative card game with a digital platform, which helps students to match their skills and experience to real-world workplace scenarios, and Ideas Factory, a creative consultancy run by the university that offers students specialist advice and expert support on employability in creative fields.
Alongside these tools, every undergraduate course incorporates some form of professional skill development focus as well as the practice and theory of the study matter. All courses at NUA are tailored to help students gain experience relevant to the working world, making them significantly more attractive to employers.
There are a range of opportunities for students to exhibit or screen their work to a wider audience including both public and industry professionals, whether it’s the online graduate showcase or external showcase events.
From 2022 NUA also offers a Level 5 Diploma in Creative Professional Studies, an additional year focused on employability for students entering their third year.
