Internationally Excellent Researchers

Research areas

That places us in the top 10 of all UK Fine Art departments.

We're proud of the international profiles of our staff.

Our permanent staff have been joined by many artist-fellows, including Lipman Trust Resident Artists and Bartlett Fellows.

This has brought leading artists from across the world to our department.

Our research students complete this truly international profile.

They're engaged in a wide range of exciting projects and exhibit their work internationally.

Our projects have been acclaimed in Britain, across Europe, Asia and America.

We support our students in seeking external funding for their study. Many currently hold awards from the AHRC and ESRC.
