  • Art & Design

    Currently ranked 4th in the UK, Fine Art offers intensive, studio-based courses from Foundation Diploma to PhD. With 24hr access to their own studio space, outstanding technical resources, and an extensive network of industry and professional practice partners, our students work with a highly accomplished team of resident and visiting artists, tutors and technical specialists. With small class sizes and a sector leading staff-to-student ratio, Fine Art is a tight-knit and dynamic creative community within which to develop new art works supported by theoretical grounding. Over the years, our Fine Art graduates have advanced impressive careers as artists, gallerists, and curators, to name but a few. With the creative industries growing faster than any other sector of the UK economy (Government statistics from DCMS), Fine Arts will help prepare you for
    a stimulating career in the arts.
