The Complete University Guide 2019, published in April 2018, showed the University ranked eighth out of 131 UK institutions for art and design subjects, putting the School of Art & Design ahead of Manchester School of Art at the Manchester Metropolitan University, Coventry University, De Montfort University, and Arts University Bournemouth.

It follows last year’s rise of three places, meaning the University has jumped 10 places in the last two years.

Barbara Matthews, Head of the College of Art, Architecture, Design and Humanities and Pro Vice-Chancellor (Culture) at NTU, said: “With roots dating back to 1843, Nottingham Trent University has long been a leading provider of art and design education in the UK.

"This ranking is an indication of the true quality of art and design education provision we provide and is a testament to all our hardworking and talented staff.”

The University’s School of Art & Design is a well-established, internationally renowned and creative higher education provider with a thriving, multicultural community of over 2,500 students. Alumni of the School include Dame Laura Knight, Jon Burgerman and Simon Starling, as well as director Jonathan Glazer and All Saints founder Stuart Trevor.
