This studio-based creative arts degree places making at its heart.

You'll gain a practical grounding in a range of creative fields of study, including ceramics, textiles, print, and wood/metal/plastics, before choosing your specialism. You’ll also explore the critical, conceptual, ethical, and environmental issues in contemporary craft through the role of making within social, cultural, and historical contexts.

Throughout your studies you’ll learn a broad range of skills to help you flourish in the workplace, including social networking, photographing your work, creating digital portfolios, applying for competitions, marketing, creating a web presence, setting up a business, working on commissions, pricing your work, approaching galleries, exhibiting, and fundraising. As we’re an Adobe Creative Campus, you’ll also have free access to a suite of industry-standard creative apps.

You’ll graduate with the confidence and transferable skills to establish your practice as a creative artist or maker or go on to pursue a career within the creative industries.
