Essential to our course are yearly projects that develop your understanding and relationships with regional and national organisations and practitioners.
You will learn to develop public-facing work, and have opportunities to engage with regional and national galleries and museums including KARST, Ocean Studios, Plymouth Arts Centre, Plymouth Museum and Art Gallery, Tate Exchange at Tate Modern, Tate St Ives, Newlyn Art Gallery and The Exchange, Cornwall. You also have opportunities to take part in regular visits and trips, including to national and international art fairs, galleries and artists’ studios and projects.
Recent international trips have included Berlin and the Venice Biennale. In addition, a visiting artist programme supports the progression and development of our students, creating strong regional and national links to professional partners and institutions, through residencies and exhibition projects that provide professional and graduate opportunities.
And there is also the possibility of studying abroad for a semester or a year at one of our Erasmus+ partner universities.
Graduates become professional artists, curators, artists’ assistants, arts facilitators, exhibition organisers, arts administrators, lecturers and teachers, art conservators and framers, art handlers, community artists, gallery owners and more.
