Design & Digital Arts


Design & Digital Arts

We live in a rapidly changing world where design and digital communication is in a constant state of flux and evolution.

At the Nottingham School of Art & Design, we encourage our students to explore design in all its guises, from analogue to digital, live performance to animation, no matter how you tell your stories, we provide you with the tools to expand your creativity, learn, and experiment.

Cross collaboration is present in all of our courses, as creatives we feel this approach is the best way to spark imagination and nurture new leaders in this ever-changing industry. Mix this with our industry standard facilities, expert academic staff, and strong connections within the national and international community, we give you the solid foundations to reach your full potential and succeed.

Today’s photographers are much more than just picture-makers. We shape the world with our narratives. We shift opinions and move people to action. We seduce, we excite. We use pictures to communicate across languages and beyond words.
