Kingston School of Art has long been recognised as one of the best art and design schools in teaching and research, which is shown in our subject rankings, research, performance, industry and student awards, and the leading brands and institutions that choose to work with us.
We prepare our students to be the creative and cultural leaders in the industries of the future.
Through collaborative working and critical practice, students understand both teamwork and multi-disciplinary making.
We are an art school where our workshops and studios are open for creative exploration and allow opportunities for students and staff to work together and to share ideas whether they are studying or researching architecture, art, communications, design, humanities or the creative industries.
We are committed to development and offer students opportunities to explore, experiment and to take risks. Find your unique signature.
Kingston School of Art comprises three schools across three campuses.
The Design Museum called our studios and workshops "a world class design facility". They provide the perfect space in which to experience practice-based learning, and explore thinking through making.
On our visit to Kingston's workshops we experienced a hugely impressive and inspirational, world class design facility abuzz with creative energy and technical verve; the ideal environment to inspire and equip the next generation of designers with the design skills for the future.
