Getting ready for…

Sept ’20

We’re open from July 6th and taking
applications for September 2020 NOW

It’s safe to say, we’ve all missed the buzz of working on creative projects in our high-end studios and spaces. So now we know that our fab facilities at Riverside and Media City will be open for beats, bytes and b-roll from Monday 6th July, excited doesn’t even cover it!

We’ll have new measures in place to ensure everyone’s safety. If you’re already a Futureworks student, we’ll be getting in touch with details of how you can access our facilities over the summer.

The switch to online teaching during lockdown was so fast it made our heads spin, but you’ll be relieved to hear we’re incorporating the best bits of online and face to face learning into your courses:

• Practical lessons and activities which require specialised learning resources will be offered face to face wherever possible.

• Other learning activities, including lectures, will be delivered as usual but with an option to join remotely, or to attend in person, subject to social distancing and safety measures.

• Students will be given an opportunity to tell us how they would prefer their support meetings to take place e.g. in person, over the phone, or online.

Enrolment and induction will take place between Monday 7th and Friday 18th September with teaching scheduled to begin week commencing Monday 21st September.

To make sure that you hit the ground running our Student Services team will be in touch with your enrolment time slot; they are the experts in guiding you through the process.

We want your return to university life to be a relaxed, enjoyable, and safe experience. Our goal is to be as flexible as possible while ensuring the best possible learning experience for our students.

We’ll be sharing more information about what to expect in September over the coming weeks.

In the meantime, we’re here to help, and if you have any questions you can reach us by email:, by phone: 0161 214 4602 or via Messenger.
