Quality teaching

You are taught and inspired by doctors, readers and professors – many are active researchers within the arts. And you benefit from the fact that a number of academic staff and an impressive list of specialist visiting lecturers are creative practitioners, offering professional experience as well as high standards of tuition and guidance. Staff are also involved in research which informs teaching and ensures our standards are abreast of current practice.

First-class facilities

We provide you with individual studios and access to the latest facilities with skilled technicians who can help you create and innovate. We have a dedicated print room with bookbinding, a media centre that loans cameras, specialist equipment (including video drones), soundproof recording studios, green screen production studios, Mac and PC labs, and a stellar workshop for wood, 3D printing, metalworking and welding. We are also one of the only art programmes in the UK with dark rooms to work with analogue photography – and all enhanced by excellent technical support.
