About us

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.

Great facilities

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.

Successful students

Our students have work exhibited regularly, they also have won many awards at national and international competitions. Over the last few years the number of student successes and commissions gained in prestigious national competitions has been amongst the highest in the country.
