Courses approved by:

We offer a wide variety of Art, Design and Performance courses, from Graphic Arts, Creative Make Up Design and Practice, Fashion and Textiles and Visual Merchandising and Promotional Design to Performance, Dance for Education and Community Practitioners and Creative Audio Technology.

These courses are designed in collaboration with leading industry specialists and allow you to express yourselves freely. Not only do we look to develop your raw talent, but we aim to instil in you with a creative edge that will prepare you for your future career.

Our courses are dedicated to practice-based, industry-led teaching and the majority of our lecturers being are either still engaged in commercial practice or have recently moved into teaching from relevant workplace settings. Many of our undergraduates undertake live projects for local and national employers, enter local, national and international competition briefs and, for some courses, complete work placements.

You will be based between our ultra modern multi-million pound University Centre - which houses a multi-purpose performance arts space and a dedicated learning resource centre - and our St Winifrede's Campus.

Our Art, Design and Performance courses are all validated by the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan), so you will also have access to UCLan’s facilities and learning resources.
