With expertise in disciplines as broad as Fine Art and Construction Management, Product and Furniture and Media Arts, the School of Art, Design and Architecture is a dynamic and supportive community of about 100 academic staff.

We work in partnership with over 1,500 students each year, and together we play an important role in shaping the future of the global cultural and creative industries and the built environment.

We offer high-quality, student-centred undergraduate degrees, postgraduate programmes, research opportunities and live work experience, through which we help you to develop and realise your ambitions. We value both traditional and cutting-edge, practices and we encourage you to explore and take risks, and to continuously push both personal and artistic boundaries.

We recognise that the big global challenges we face will be solved by talented interdisciplinary teams and not individuals. Our staff and students – in addition to the considerable contributions they make to their own disciplines – demonstrate the value that their creative practice can bring to interdisciplinary collaborations across areas including health and wellbeing, social and community welfare, and new modes of manufacturing and building.

We understand the importance of a globalised education and value open-mindedness and the ability to understand and operate internationally. Our students, lecturers and researchers come from all over the world, fromĀ  Europe to India, Scandinavia to China, Australia to Japan, Africa to the Americas, and of course the UK.

We offer a contemporary, exciting working environment in the heart of one of the most beautiful regions in the country. We want our staff and students to be challenged by, and offer solutions to, real-world problems, to be rewarded by winning and creating the best jobs, and to enjoy studying in a collegial, professional environment.
