Before you decide where you would like to study and what course is right for you, it’s helpful to attend an online event and speak to real staff and students about your options. Come along to our next Pre-degree Digital Drop-in Event, taking place from 4-6pm on Wednesday 20 May 2020 and discover how Plymouth College of Art students are pushing the boundaries in art, design and digital media. 

Our Digital-Drop in events are a chance for you to get a virtual feel for life at an independent art school. Both online and on-campus, we are committed to providing meaningful learning experiences and we can’t wait to show you the creative courses we offer. Come along and live chat with our expert academics and knowledgeable Admissions team, or find out about student life from the people who know us best - our current students!
