School of Arts


Discover, test and experiment with contemporary fine art as you forge an independent creative practice.

You’ll be introduced to a range of artistic practices that link traditional skills and approaches with alternative media such as sound, video and installation. You’ll make use of our excellent contemporary and traditional facilities to produce distinctive, challenging and imaginative artworks.

By studying the key concepts in recent critical theory and learning how they underpin contemporary art, you’ll develop an informed practice and the ability to analyse and discuss contemporary art.

Throughout the course you’ll have the opportunity to build rich professional and practical skills through modules that are routed in the real art world.

You’ll be taught by practicing artists, curators, writers, and technical specialists, and benefit from our relationships with contemporary galleries and arts organisations.

Many of our graduates establish themselves as self-employed artists or go on to careers within the creative industries.
