      Schutz, Oana Claudia (University of Bedfordshire, 2008)
      Academic services have long been provided across a range of subjects. In the creative industries issues have arisen over the convergence of the creative industries in becoming a major player in the UK's economy. This thesis presents the results of research into the extent to which academic services assist creative aspirations. The research found failings and disagreements on many levels which at present is stifling the progress and successfulness of academic services within the creative industries. The thesis views all aspects of how the industries operate and its contribution to the economy in order that academic services can be most effective in serving the creative industries and furthering the skills set within them.
