Degree Shows

Degree Show 2022 in The Arches

This year we have had the absolute pleasure of hosting our Degree Show in the newly refurbished victorian railway arch – Arch 27, the first ever event in this new venue. It is the most beautiful space in which to exhibit, with views of the old and the new, in the heart of the City of Worcester.

Our students, once again, have worked hard to design their own show, organise and manage their event, including branding, advertising and hosting. This is perfect, real experience for the students, and they should be very proud of what they have achieved.

The theme of this year’s Degree Show was retro pixels with a 2022 twist, and developed from their very successful December exhibition at the Cathedral, Creative Chapters, where students networked with the creative industries, built strong relationships and were offered employment opportunities. Creative Chapters has retro-glithched into Creative Pixels!

The Degree Show was launched on 12 May 2022 at a Private View, attended by family and friends of the final year students, together with many VIPs from the Creative Industries, companies, businesses and organisations. It was brilliant to see so many of our graduates returning to support the Class of 2022, many of whom look to our Course when recruiting new staff in their workplaces. There is no better accolade.



We are proud to announce that the winner of the Nifty Comms Award for Creative Media was awarded to Ellie Lindop. Rachel Collison, Head of Operations, judged the student display spaces based on the criteria of the most effective creative display space, in communicating to prospective employers, including online personal promotion.

“Very impressive class. I was delighted to be asked to judge the prize for this degree show on behalf of Nifty Communications. Such a high level of work.”

Ellie was awarded an internship with Nifty Comms and a pretty impressive goody bag. A huge congratulations, it was very well deserved. Ellie also gained a Platinum Worcester Award, the first of our students ever to achieve this level of Worcester Award.
