This paper argues that linking creative practice to the Personal Development Planning (PDP) agenda provides opportunities for students to make meaningful associations between their university studies and their ongoing vocational and personal development. Supporting students with their creative process can help to enhance their assessed work and also provide them with life skills that they can take into the work place and lives beyond university. Enabling students to make links between their sources for inspiration and the development of their creative practice can sometimes be difficult, meaning that students fail to see their personal creativity as having a meaningful effect on their practice, their vocational ambitions and personal development.
