It is vital for Universities and art organisations to work together to support the career choices and offer pathways for young students.
Head of Learning, firstsite and NUA Creative Industry Liaison Group
We encourage experimentation and original thinking. We attract ambitious students excited by the opportunities offered in a specialist University. You’ll be challenged to develop your ideas as you learn new skills and acquire further knowledge.
A multidisciplinary approach allows you to work with paint, print, sculpture and hybrid practice, in either a focused or pluralistic way. Teaching primarily takes place in your studio space where you can discuss your ideas with tutors, fellow students, technicians and visiting professionals.
Recent visitors to the University include 2013 Turner Prize winner Laure Prouvost, Sculptor Sir Antony Gormley, Tate Modern Curator Marcus Dickey Horley and Artist Cornelia Parker.
National and international visits, projects and events include Wysing Arts Centre, Berlin, Tate Modern and Camden Arts Centre. Our weekly lecture series invites significant artists, curators, gallery owners and critics. The Gallery at NUA has in the last year shown work by Grayson Perry, Damien Hirst, Gilbert & George, Rachel Whiteread and Jake and Dinos Chapman.
Being part of this creative community offers three years of experimentation, challenge, debate and professional understanding as you gain confidence as an artist and creative thinker.

The city is a hub of creativity including brilliant music venues and museums. It’s a perfect city to develop my interest in community and public art.
