Creative Enterprise

Our aim at West Herts College is to ensure that our Creative Enterprise students are industry ready, entrepreneurial in their outlook and well equipped to start a business within their chosen sector or use their new industry contacts to access diverse opportunities in the world of work.

The Creative Enterprise Foundation degrees and HNDs are designed to allow students to express their creativity and encourage blue sky thinking, at a time when the creative industries are growing at a rapid rate.

Choosing one of our courses is an investment in your future, our degrees are more affordable than university and allow you to build links with our staff who are experts in their fields, with contacts right across the creative sectors.

Now is the time to study a creative course

1.9 million. That’s the number of people working directly in the creative industries, there are endless possibilities for creatives. Let’s look a little closer – the Department for Culture, Media and Sport have identified that the UK’s creative industries are stronger than ever, they are growing at nearly twice the rate of the wider UK economy.

Your options

Ideas and innovation are at the heart of these exciting degrees, with a strong emphasis on practical experimental work. Projects will inspire and challenge your thinking as you search for design, communication and performance solutions across a wide range of specialisms.

Choose from creative pathways in: 

Foundation degree - Photography

Foundation degree - Media Production

HND - Performing Arts

HND - Music

You’ll be set for taking on the creative industries

Successful students can consider employment in the sector or further study by topping up your Fd for a full Honours degree at the University of Hertfordshire across specified pathways. Those graduating the HND will also have opportunities at a wide range of universities to top up to a full honours degree. Most importantly though, these two year qualifications are industry recognised meaning employers are fully aware of the practical benefits of choosing a Foundation degree or HND.
