Studios and workshops

StudioMany of our art, design and architecture courses focus on studio-based learning – it is here that your ideas come to life. This is why we provide great workshops and the latest equipment to support and enhance your learning experience.

We have recently expanded and upgraded our workshops, enabling you to work alongside and be inspired by students from other creative disciplines.

Our specialist support and technical staff will help you get the most from our facilities. In the first year, for example, introductory sessions give you the skills you need to use all of our workshops.

Specialist facilities include:

  • digital media workshops;
  • photography suite;
  • printmaking studio;
  • 3D materials workshop;
  • state-of-the-art filming environment and animation suite; and
  • architectural science and technology laboratory (ArchiLab).
