The School of Art ( provides a scholarly framework for students who wish to develop their practice. A major objective of the programmes is to provide an environment that is broad, yet with enough rigour and focus to enable students to engage with the challenges of contemporary art practice in a variety of strategies, processes and materials. The programmes encourage students to integrate research, creative practice and contemporary cultural theory within and beyond their chosen discipline.

The School of Art subjects share a common structure, providing a framework for the different disciplinary cultures within the School of Art to develop. The School is a stimulating community of students, artists and theorists. The airy and light-filled studios, project spaces and workshops provide excellent facilities for making work, communicating ideas and generating dialogue.

With almost 500 students, engagement and collaboration takes place across the School, the College, the University and the city, establishing a supportive and critical framework where a sophisticated understanding of the diversity of art practice and visual culture can be developed. We provide an environment that enables our graduates to understand and prepare for the multi-faceted and transmuting nature of the art world post academia.
