Centre for Digital Creation and Production

Working with industry partners including AutodeskCast Ltd., DisguiseETC (Electronic Theatre Controls) Ltd., Philips LightingRobe and White Light and with support from the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) Catalyst Fund, we have created a £3.5 million state-of-the-art Centre of Digital Production to develop a hub for digital theatre practice.


The new centre will be welcoming students from September 2020 onto the following degree programmes:

Digital Content Design for Theatre and Live Events, BA (Hons)

This three-year degree will give students the creative skills they need to become digital content designers. They will also learn to operate media servers, cameras, projectors, control desks, motion capture and virtual reality equipment and green screen technologies. 

Virtual Theatre and Digital Experiences, BA (Hons)

This three-year course will give students the skills they need to graduate as creative technologists so they can design and create digital theatre and experiences. They will be able to tell stories and create worlds through the latest digital technologies including Virtual Reality, Mixed Reality and Game Platforms.

"Society is moving into the fourth industrial revolution, what many call Industry 4.0. We are in an age of artificial intelligence, drones, big data, electric vehicles and virtual reality.

At Rose Bruford College, we are working with employers to map future trends and skills needs for the theatre and live events industry and training our students to ensure there is a skilled workforce to not only meet those needs but also help shape the future of the industry."
