Nottingham School of Art & Design

We Are Innovators. We Are Thinkers. We Are Creatives.

We are one of the world’s leading art and design schools and we have been influencing, inspiring and innovating for over 175 years. We are guided by our past, focused on our future, and proud to be shaping what comes next.

Located right in the heart of one of the UK’s most exciting cities, we are surrounded by – and contribute to – an originality, energy and imagination that makes Nottingham a very special place to live, work and create.

From nurturing talent to daring research and collaborations that are shaking up the industry, we are breaking convention, and challenging the very ideas of what is possible for an art and design school.
