The student experience

Getting a good degree is just the start of what we offer here. Developing your creative talent and your confidence are every bit as key to your success.

On our courses, the Creative Skillset accreditation shows we equip our students with the skills and knowledge that employers need today. And our staff have an excellent reputation for developing creative individuals and strategic partnerships with the wider creative community. 

Collaborative and live projects are embedded into the course, giving our students a creative and technical edge over graduates from more specialist production or purely contemporary art-based courses.

The School has outstanding traditional and cutting-edge digital facilities. You will get the chance to put your work on show to potential employers using We Grow Cherries, the School’s online talent pool. 

You'll also get to study in Birmingham — and more specifically Eastside, the centre of Birmingham’s thriving artistic and creative community — as well as having the chance to take part in a number of overseas opportunities.
