Further Information

The MRes in the field of Creativity, Inclusivity and the Virtual is a one-year full-time research programme based in the College of Arts, exploring the potential of Extended Reality to enhance social inclusion within the creative, cultural and heritage economies. The project may be based in Music, Film and TV Studies, Philosophy (Centre for the Study of Perceptual Experience), or Information Studies.
