We're a multidisciplinary School offering teaching and research in the following areas:

  • Fine Art
  • Media, Culture, Heritage
  • Music

We have a clear commitment to developing excellence across our undergraduate and postgraduate curricula. Our students are taught by internationally renowned researchers and have access to excellent facilities. The University is consistently ranked highly in league tables and the School of Arts and Cultures contributes strongly to these.

Most of all, we commit to preparing our students for the world of work. Many of our graduates secure the best employment opportunities in their fields regionally, nationally and internationally.

The staff were always supportive and encouraging, helping to nurture the strengths of individual students and challenging and training me to think critically.
