Welcome to The School of the Arts
The School of the Arts provides specialist programmes allowing both total engagement in a specific area of study and an opportunity for a more flexible approach with interaction between disciplines. Studio practice is developed alongside research, and an underpinning of theoretical knowledge and a belief that learning occurs through practice set in a context whether cultural, historical, social, technological or professional.
The School is forward-looking in attitude and continues to initiate many exciting developments in areas of research, learning and teaching, application of new technologies and international projects, all of which inform our students.
All staff practice within their subject fields and endeavour to provide a supportive and challenging academic environment.
The School is equipped with some of the best facilities available for visual artists: extensive workshop facilities, studios, equipment and the latest IT resources including high speed internet access.
A Vibrant Research Community
The School of the Arts has a vibrant and ever-expanding research community of leading practitioners, scholars and postgraduate students working on world-leading research in identified areas of excellence. Our research culture reflects the School’s reputation and outstanding achievements in the Art and Design sector.
