University Summary

Our tutors won’t just set assignments and leave you to get on with it. Open and approachable, they’re committed and involved in the whole college community, living and breathing art.

As artists, they know how important it is to trial ideas and share expertise. They understand what it takes to develop a portfolio or prepare for an exhibition. They also know it’s essential to be able to think practically as well as creatively.

Our course leaders arrange for industry to set and assess real-life briefs, helping students to understand how to succeed in business – without compromising creativity or integrity.

Art and the community

Our college has strong links with the wider community. We run a busy national and international programme of visiting artists, exhibitions, public events and partnership activities. As a student here you’ll be making connections with artists, industry and potential employers from day one.

Traditional and visionary

Many art colleges are phasing out traditional crafts such as print or analogue photography to focus more on digital methods. While we have some of the best digital courses and equipment in the country, we’re also constantly developing and improving our traditional art courses.

To illustrate our commitment, we invested in a new specialist art, craft and digital design centre, costing almost £8M, these state-of-the-art ceramics, glass and digital design workshops were officially opened by Sir John Sorrell in 2014.

Our vision:

High-quality education for life in contemporary arts practice, as the creative catalyst for personal, professional and cultural transformation.

Our ethos:

Places the aspirations and support needs of every student at the very heart of our creative enterprise.

Our purpose:

As an independent specialist Art College since 1856 is to provide a distinctive, innovative and supportive learning community in contemporary arts practice; to add value to the cultural, social and economic life of Plymouth and the South West region; and to develop our distinctive profile of our work nationally and internationally.
