Based in a world heritage city, and in the dynamic art and design economy of the southwest of England, it’s a beautiful place to learn. Through inspirational teaching and research, and connected to a network of international partners, students become socially engaged global citizens.

Courses are delivered by leading specialists in their fields, and in excellent teaching and workshop facilities. Offered in one-year full-time, or two-year part-time formats, all our courses have close links to their respective professional sectors.

In each discipline we encourage depth of subject understanding, yet a multidisciplinary approach, and the range of exceptional equipment and workshops in wood, metal, ceramics, textiles, print, photography, plastic, casting, paint, fashion and digital technologies support this experience.
