The School of Art focuses on integrating traditional skills with contemporary theory and practice to produce first-class fine art students. We place drawing at the heart of the student experience in light of the recent revival of interest in traditional drawing skills; our School of Art is at the vanguard of contemporary art education.

The School of Art can offer you excellent facilities for the study of painting, the graphic arts, and photography, with studio facilities for painting, printmaking in intaglio, lithography, screen and relief printing, typography, black and white and colour photography. We also have a Creative Media Lab for the development of digital art, animation and video. The hundred-year-old listed building that houses the School of Art contains an art gallery that displays artefacts from the School’s extensive collection, with pieces dating from the 15th century to the present. At the end of your course you will be able to exhibit your own art in this exhibition space.

The English Literature side of your degree makes you an ideal candidate for a career as a journalist, publisher, editor, author or literary agent. You could choose to go onto further study in one of your degree subjects and pursue a career in lecturing and research, or you could take a PGCE and teach either Art or English in a school.
