The quality of work is testament to the commitment and professionalism of the delivery team and showcases our courses that prepare learners for a range of exciting careers in Creative and Digital industries.”

Jenna Gardner, Assistant Head of School Creative, Digital and Community at Blackburn University Centre, said: “This year has certainly been challenging for our degree students - many have had to adapt their practice and make significant changes to the way in which they work.
