Background to Uversity

Uversity was a Recognised College of the National University of Ireland from 2013 to 2018 and during this period, Uversity worked in partnership with twenty-four leading higher education institutions on the island of Ireland to offer a Master of Arts (MA) in Creative Process. This degree programme was delivered to international students for three academic years from 2014-2017. 

 The MA (Creative Process) was a 12-month 90 ECTS degree programme at Level 9 on the Irish Qualifications Framework (NFQ) that integrated study, creative practice and immersive experience in Ireland’s academic and creative communities. Each student was facilitated by Uversity and a mentor to build and realise a cohesive academic and creative learning programme that consisted of three major components: 

  1. Core Module in Creative Process and Immersive Practice that encouraged Uversity students to explore their creative process through a combination of artistic, scholarly and somatic activities.
  2. Optional Modules provided students with the flexibility to design a customised programme based on their personal educational goals and areas of interest. A choice of modules in the creative and performing arts were offered by Uversity’s twenty-four higher education partners. Students were encouraged and facilitated to attend more than one institution.
  3. Creative Project that was completed during the Summer term in a host institution of the student’s choice.
