Fine art programmes at Teesside offer a radically different approach to university study with amazing equipment and access to staff with international reputations. Each student is treated as an individual and part of a community of artists. You'll have exceptional access to tutors, facilities and visiting artists from around the globe.
We have a diverse course with staff and students from around the world. Our Critical Perspectives series features international artists and thinkers, and we have strong links to our partner programmes in Prague. Study visits happen every year to cities like Paris, Amsterdam, Venice and Berlin.
Teesside has a top-class library that benefits from constant improvement and a wide array of books and media on artists as well as a unique curated artist-book collection. We also have professionals to help you with your writing, study and research skills. Teesside University has an award-winning Students' Union and state-of-the art study spaces. Our Student Services and School staff can handle any enquiry and support students with specific needs to make your University journey sensational.
We ensure that you leave the course with the creative skills to be an artist, curator and a wide range of other careers. At Teesside we have an innovative and engaging community that supports you with your future, offering paid internships and plenty of opportunities to develop skills to make it after University. We are here to help you succeed as students and alumni.
Potential students are invited for an interview and given a tour of our outstanding facilities, meet staff and students, and view current work-in-progress. We also get the opportunity to discuss your portfolio and interests.
