Through Professional Skills modules, the curriculum supports our students to develop and hone practical, cognitive, subject specific and transferable skills, providing for a breadth of future opportunities from post-graduate and doctorate study to public and private sector employment.
We have excellent links with many London based, National and International organisations. We work with large publicly funded galleries, museums and private galleries, as well as artist run spaces and collectives. Through, exchanges, residencies, competitions, travel scholarships and live projects, we provide students with first hand professional experience in the creative sector, often leading to ongoing partnerships.

At each stage of the Fine Art course you are encouraged to undertake the practice of exhibiting work, at our on-site gallery, as well as other London locations.
