Students & Graduates


​​​After graduation many of our students go on to develop careers within the arts sector, demonstrating the amazing scope of possibilities open to those with an arts education background. From curating, managing galleries, education and art therapy, to arts administration and practicing as artists and designers. 

We continue to support our graduates with access to resources such as the library, and facilities such as kilns and the foundry. Visit our Research and Enterprise web pages​ for full details of the range of ways in which we continue to champion our alumni.​
