Months of entry
Study in the studio, classroom and professional environments alongside like-minded students on a dynamic course that explores the theories and new ideas in contemporary art and design. You could choose to specialise in areas such as curating and sound art, and you will be encouraged to debate current practice with your peers during project work, weekly seminars and artist workshops.
You will develop your professional relationships taking part in projects and events in the region and beyond. We have forged close relationships with the Henry Moore Institute in Leeds and with the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London, which will provide opportunities for you to develop your creative skills in professional settings and promote your work to influential organisations.
The majority of your time will be spent in the studio, and you will have the chance to showcase your work at an end-of-course exhibition. Previous students have also taken part in exhibitions and collaborations at Leeds Art Gallery, The Photographers' Gallery in London, the European Exchange Academy and Another Vacant Space in Berlin, Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris and the British Art Show.
