Fusing academia with business helps to grow a thriving city…

Manchester is home to the second largest creative and digital cluster in Europe – the North West as a whole plays host to more than 31,000 companies and nearly 330,000 employees (source: MIDAS).  At MediaCityUK, we are working to ensure we have the right mix of academic players within our community.

The University of Salford, Salford City College, and the Oasis Academy are just some of the names that have joined us on our journey so far and already developed beneficial relationships with the companies here. We also work closely with organisations offering training, apprenticeship and business advice – including Creative England and Creative Skillset.
