The twelve-month Master’s programme empowers you to curate your education. You choose elective modules from our educational partners and complete a final project that combines academic study and artistic practice. You can study in different institutions but will meet your Uversity
classmates for a Core Module that combines academic study and immersive cultural experiences in various locations around Ireland. Throughout your journey, you will be supported by a creative mentor, selected from our panel of practising artists to align with your creative practice.
This 90 ECTS Master’s degree is awarded by the National University of Ireland. Tuition fees are €17,000 and a limited number of scholarships are available for international students.
