Art & Design
The creative industry is a growing and dynamic place. Our Art and Design course is designed with a practical approach which recognises and embraces your individuality. You will flourish, by learning in a dedicated Art and Design studio alongside like-minded students and industry experts.
Why you should study Art and Design at WUC...
Our course is 2nd for Art and Design courses in the UK, according to The Complete University Guide 2018, based on student satisfaction in the quality of teaching.
Many graduates have become successful nationally and internationally-recognised artists and designers who exhibit their work across the UK, Europe, Asia and Australia.
You will be given your own dedicated studio space allowing you the freedom to explore and create.
You can explore areas such as painting, printmaking, photography, web design, graphic design, textiles, illustration or a combination of these specialisms.
You will benefit from regular study trips to galleries, art fairs, creative practices and the studios of artists and designers.
You will be able to participate in weekly student-led drawing classes to explore new creative techniques.
You will learn from tutors who are practising artists and designers, as well as weekly guest speakers who are artists, designers and employers in the culture industries.
Our degree combines the best of art and design education by giving you a carefully supported transition over its three years to increasingly independent activity within a lively and friendly studio culture, led by working artists and designers.
Our lectures, tutorials and collaborations - along with a great deal of one-to-one help and advice - make this course an exceptional preparation for subsequent working life.
You will complete your course by presenting your work at our annual degree show, which is attended by the public and employers.
