About the Festival

Following the success of last year’s award-winning Digital Skills Festival, we’re delighted to announce that the Digital Skills Festival will return for a second year between Monday 30th May and Friday 3rd June 2022.

Free to attend to University students and staff, the festival will include a number of interactive events, presentations, workshops and courses, delivered by speakers from within and outside of the University.

We hope that you’ll join us again for the Digital Skills Festival on 30th May 2022 to develop your digital skills, exchange ideas and celebrate all things digital.
