The School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies is one of the largest and most exciting centres in the UK for aspiring cultural practitioners — artists, theorists, curators, historians of art — to hone their creative and critical skills and broaden their intellectual horizons.

We are an internationally recognised leader in research and research-led teaching in the history of art, art gallery and museum studies, cultural and media studies, and fine art.
