Unit X

Unit X brings together students to design, experiment and develop creative projects in association with partner organisations in Manchester, Stockport and beyond.

Working across programmes and in local and global partnerships, students engage with creative learning in new ways. Our collaborative learning model with external businesses and organisations allows us to explore the potential of the future of design in a real world setting.

All Unit X projects value critical and creative thinking, collaboration and experimentation on important issues facing our present and future.

In these six videos, students and staff talk about Unit X and the projects undertaken in 2022.

Creative Industries

By engaging with the city, professional contexts, creative discourse, and the international creative community, Unit X ensures students have the inspiration and scope to prepare them for the creative world beyond their studies.

Collaboration is the key skill sought by employers across the creative sector and by trialling interdisciplinary collaboration in a fail-safe environment students have the opportunity to explore new perspectives, ideas and approaches to making and designing.
