Waterford Institute of Technology is a Founding Partner of Uversity, a new approach to education in Ireland.
WIT has joined the Uversity programme to advance creative education by building upon the rich heritage in arts and culture in Ireland.
The island of Ireland is a natural destination for studying creativity in its broadest sense; its cultural, literary and artistic impact in the world is disproportionate to a country of its size.
Uversity will admit students from around the world for its flagship programme, a Master of Arts in Creative Process. Modules will be offered in Art and Design, Cinema and Broadcast Arts, Creative Cultural Industries, Creative Technologies, Creative Writing, Dance, Drama and Theatre Studies, Literature, Arts and Culture and Music.
Uversity puts students in control of their education within a learning framework that promotes individuality and creative difference. Students can design a personalised programme by choosing modules that are offered by a range of universities and institutions.
Each student is assigned a personal mentor and will spend semesters in host institutions, attending modules of the core Uversity programme and spending flexible time engaged with the world of practice.
