Unique heritage and vision
We’re a specialist school for artists, run by artists. We combine over a century’s worth of history with up-to-the-minute thinking and cutting-edge facilities – including a brand new £7.7m art, craft and digital design wing opening in September 2013.
Opportunities across disciplines
Here, fashion designers, photographers, graphic designers, fine artists and many more learn and create side-by-side. Whatever your specialism, you’ll have the chance to swap skills and experiment with other methods.
You’ll learn in small groups and have all the time you need with tutors and technicians. They’ll share their expertise, while encouraging you to find your own path and develop your creative strengths.
Everything you need to get ahead
You’ll work to live briefs set by industry professionals. You’ll use industry standard equipment and software. And we’ll give you regular opportunities for networking and work experience. With a focus on enterprise and entrepreneurship, you’ll gain essential business skills such as how to price and sell your work.
Vibrant events programme
We have a busy calendar of exhibitions, films, visiting artists and events for both students and the public in our Gallery.
The perfect student location
Plymouth offers a buzzing city centre, stunning landscapes and coastline, and speedy connections to London and Europe, by air, road and rail.
