I initially studied at QMU for an undergraduate degree in public relations and media. I had a great passion for filmmaking and in my final year of the course, I set up a video production business, Smart Film Production, with one of my classmates, Marcin Walczak.

I was immediately interested when I heard about it the new the MA Culture and Creative Enterprise at QMU. Coming from non-business background, the course appeared a great opportunity to grasp some business related knowledge, such as finance, marketing, enterprise development and many others, to help me to further develop our video production enterprise. Also, having already experienced the friendly and supportive learning environment at QMU, I was confident that I would have an excellent postgraduate learning experience. In general I saw this course as an opportunity to develop further professionally as an entrepreneur, but also personally.

"The course helped me to get a better understanding of the culture and creative industry, which I operate in professionally. I found some of the subjects very relevant to my profession and vice versa."

The course helped me to get a better understanding of the culture and creative industry, which I operate in professionally. I found some of the subjects very relevant to my profession and vice versa. The course not only equipped me with wider knowledge of culture and creative industries, but also freshed entrepreneurial skills, including various aspects of enterprise development and other business related activities.

The small cohort of students, who came from a wide variety of career paths in the arts and cultural industries, provided an excellent opportunity for us to share our experiences and learn from one another. The lecturers were very approachable, supportive and always eager to help.
