Upcoming Open Days

Before deciding where and what to study, it is important that you find out as much as you can about the place and the course you are interested in.

Diverse, buzzing and a hotbed of creative talent, explore our art school community – big on collaboration and innovation – at one of our Open Days.

You’ll meet staff and students where you can find out more about the courses, obtain financial advice, be shown around our workshop and studio spaces and have the chance to explore our vibrant and exciting city to help you make your decision about studying here.

"Plymouth is a major city close to the sea and Dartmoor, so it's great for socialising and getting creative ideas."
— Allie Couch, BA (Hons) Graphic Design graduate


As well as meeting our passionate students and expert staff, our Open Days are a chance for you to explore our world-leading studio spaces – with courses across all areas of the college holding demonstrations and workshops that you can try your hand at. These range throughout the year but regular workshops include portrait photography, print demonstrations, and glass-blowing.

With expert staff on hand to answer any of your questions, and a chance to meet our alumni at our inspiring talks – there's no excuse not to visit Plymouth.
