Preparing Students for Professional Life
Our teaching success results from deep engagement with industry and the creative and cultural sectors – many of our teachers and technicians maintain parallel careers in business or are practicing artists.
We produce enterprising graduates who use their creativity to affect society and the way we live our lives – through works of art, the clothes we wear, the products and technologies we use, the films we watch and the books and newspapers we read. With more than 200,000 graduates around the world this influence reaches global audiences.
There is a strong entrepreneurial emphasis. Many alumni set up their own business with many more self-employed and in portfolio careers. Crucially, they have the skills and attributes to develop their creativity throughout their working lives.
