All of our staff are practising artists, curators and writers, and our research-led teaching offers opportunities for you to engage with exhibition and curatorial initiatives, theoretical texts and publication projects.
Art is an active department with events, performances, screenings and shared discussion across disciplines that create a social environment. We pride ourselves on the quality and vibrancy of our 24-hour studio community. As a student on one of our master’s courses, you will find yourself part of a vibrant postgraduate community and intellectual environment, including staff and PhD students.
Our postgraduate teaching assistant scheme offers you opportunities to gain mentored teaching experience working on our undergraduate programmes.
