Wolverhampton Screen School
Building on the established reputation and specialisms at Wolverhampton for delivering subjects such as Animation and Games Design, we are delighted to bring together disciplines under one brand 'Wolverhampton Screen School’.
Our new multi-million pound, Screen School, represents a radical transformation of our educational offer – providing an impetus for our ongoing commitment to regional upskilling, nurturing talent for the careers of tomorrow for local regeneration. Ongoing course development will dovetail with industry requirements, economic regeneration and social mobility of students in our increasingly ‘buzzing’ region to offer a new epicentre of screen based creativity for the West Midlands.
Screen School will be a public facing and dynamic industry-linked space to promote, develop, produce content designed for screen based media through the existing courses: Animation, Computer Games Design, Film and Television Production, Multimedia Journalism. We are exploring and developing further opportunities (e.g. Visual FX, Cyber Psychology and other exciting cross disciplinary areas) to empower our students with specialist skills and opportunities to work with a range of practitioners towards professional industry facing outcomes.
We intend to provide a new and diverse talent pipeline to address the shortage of graduate skills in such creative industries both locally and nationally. As such, this allows the ethos of the Wolverhampton School of Art to flourish and innovate as part of an emergent technological frontier.
