Who we are

The School of Digital Arts is a purpose-built, interdisciplinary school at one of the UK’s leading universities.

It is a £35m investment into the workspaces, networks, teaching and research that will drive ideas and innovation across all forms of creative content – a new School of Digital Arts that opens at Manchester Metropolitan University in 2021.
