Our Art courses have been ranked in the UK’s top five for student-to-staff ratio by the 2018 Guardian University Guide. This means we offer a lower number of students per member of our academic teaching staff. This ensures our students develop a closer relationship with their lecturers, feel supported, receive quicker access to constructive feedback, and benefit from being more involved throughout studies.
“It’s a small and friendly University with a variety of students from different backgrounds. The art resources are fantastic and you are always taught in small groups so you get more time with tutors. I love having freedom to explore my own personal ideas as well as the ones directed.” – Kate MyersBSc (Hons) Fine Art
Fine Art graduates often splinter off into a range of career directions, which is why our BA (Hons) Fine Art course lets you explore your creativity and experiment with drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking, ceramics, photography, installation, performance, digital and video art.

Our students are encouraged to participate in foreign study trips, as well as visit exhibitions and events at galleries, public art installations, sculpture parks and arts centres around the UK to encourage hands-on learning.
