Our international community

    As one of the largest specialist creative arts universities in Europe, we offer a truly global perspective in creative education, with 17 per cent of our students coming to study with us from overseas. We have a diverse international community that welcomes students from 91 nations from all over the world.

Why study in the UK?

If you aspire to launch a successful career in the creative industries, there is no better foundation than a creative arts education in the UK. That’s because:

  • The UK is internationally recognised as the place to study art and design and leads the world in creativity and innovation.
  • The UK is a diverse and exciting place to live. The art, architecture and history of the UK and nearby European cities are inspirational.
  • The creative industries in the UK are expanding at twice the rate of the rest of the economy which means you will have a wealth of opportunities during your studies and after you graduate.
  • You will take an experimental and analytical approach to your work and will develop a critical and open-minded view. This way of thinking produces some of the most unique and highly employable graduates in the world.
