In the last 20 years, the creative economy in the UK has soared to remarkable heights – in fact, the creative industries are growing at almost twice the rate of the wider UK economy.
With over 3.04 million people working in jobs that contribute to the UK’s creative economy, there’s a huge range of career possibilities open to exploration – and with more than half of all workers in the creative industries holding a degree, creative courses play an important role in the job market.
