Students experience an intense and exciting atmosphere, where tutors feel passionately that, through hard work, every student should discover their individual creative potential. Tutors are often practising artists or designers in their own right ensuring that subject specialist communities of practice develop which are externally facing and prepare students for meaningful careers in the creative industries, many students gaining national and international acclaim through industry awards.
