Research at Yoobee


At Yoobee College of Creative Innovation we harness research to expand boundaries, fuel innovation and power progress.

Research informs and strengthens our teaching practices and makes sure our students and graduates are equipped with globally-relevant skills that meet industry demands and contribute to the broader community.

Teaching Faculty

Staff teaching on our bachelor’s programmes are supported and encouraged to undertake research, enhancing teaching and learning for our students and helping them develop intellectual independence in an authentic and academically robust environment.

Our research is guided by our Head of Research and our Research Committee and Academic Board, and staff get a chance to meet and present their work at a yearly  staff Research Symposium, along with actively presenting at conferences and key symposiums.

Undergraduate and Postgraduate Research and Study

Graduates of our undergraduate programmes benefit from research-informed teaching that boosts critical thinking skills. Learning is maximised through practical projects and delivery methods that echo the industries graduates will move into, today and tomorrow.

Research-informed teaching also adds depth and breadth to our postgraduate programmes, and many of our students embark on research as part of their learning. Project-based learning emulates the current and future creative and IT industries and develops crucial critical thinking skills that set students up for success.
