The programme would be suitable if you have graduated with a good honours degree or equivalent in a subject directly relevant to art and design.

Studying with us, you will have access to excellent resources and gain practical experience in two of around 250 schools with whom we have partnerships. You will be mentored by a successful teaching team with an outstanding national reputation and comprehensive research profile that informs course content.
