Uversity is a ground-breaking higher education initiative which aims to position Ireland as a world leader in progressive higher education in culture, creativity and the arts.
At the heart of our programmes lie our signature pedagogies of inquiry, immersion, interpretation, instruction and independent initiative. These are the fundamental philosophical values that shape the learning environment as a whole for the Uversity student.
Uversity offer two very different types of programmes - a one year Master of Arts in Creative Process and a short immersive programme in theatre. New short programmes will be announced shortly.
Our MA programme enables students to customize their education experience choosing modules in creative and performing arts from different partner institutions across the island of Ireland. The Uversity student experience is furthered by individualised mentoring with creative practitioners and this is a key element of the Master of Arts in Creative Process.
Our short programme is designed for undergraduate or post-graduate students, theatre practitioners or those interested in an in-depth, hands-on experiential exploration of theatre. Over the course of 5 days, students will be immersed in The Fishamble Theatre Company exploring and analysing The Fishamble’s canon of work followed by 2 days creating and rehearsing a short piece of the student’s own work.
Learning for the Uversity student involves a fundamental encounter with the purposes and understandings of creative practice and involves going beyond surface learning into a deeper enquiry and engagement with creative process.
We wish you luck with your application and look forward to welcoming you to Uversity
