This is an ideal time for a person with vision and drive to join a dedicated team in the development of a growing academic portfolio in Film, Television, Animation, Games, VFX, VR, Sound Art, Sound Design, and Music Production.

The role includes the knowledge, management and implementation of quality assurance, monitoring processes and academic administration across the academic portfolio, as well as the implementation of UAL and College teaching, assessment and learning policies, and you will work with the Dean of Academic Development and Strategy and other College and School Associate Deans to achieve this.
