Art and Design Studentships
We are inspired by a love for our craft and are committed to pushing its boundaries into new territories, challenging the very ideas of what is possible for an art and design school.
With research spanning from fashion and textiles to visual arts and communications, the School of Art and Design offers a space for postgraduate researchers to develop vibrant, original projects whilst supported by a dynamic, interdisciplinary community.
Our motto is "we are what we create" which is reflected in the strategic goals of our three research centres.
