What our students think of our facilities:..

“We have great facilities in moving image, sound, wood, clay, metal workshops and more, which aid you to build a contemporary art practice. Bonington Gallery brings contemporary art right to our doorstep. Being able to explore exhibitions on campus whilst studying has been handy. Central facilities like the library are great for accessing research and information on artists; it means you don’t just have to rely on information from the internet.”

Emily Simpson, MFA Fine Art

“NTU has really good facilities - especially in film and video which is my speciality. The technical staff here are extremely supportive and give you access to just about every piece of software or technology you might need. There is also access to a range of other resources such as print making, casting and woodwork, which has all been really beneficial for my studies.”
