Art and Design

So, you’re creative and have an eye for detail. Maybe you’ve got your heart set on becoming a fashion designer, games developer, web designer, app designer or graphic designer? Or perhaps you prefer the more traditional, visual arts side such as jewellery design, fine art or print making? Whatever career you’ve got your eye on, we’ve got the courses, facilities, employer links and tutors to get you there.

The city of Sheffield has one of the fastest growing creative and digital sectors in the country. From small art galleries and design shows to graphic design agencies producing work from converted industrial buildings. The scene is diverse and the opportunities plentiful.

Based at our Hillsborough campus, we’ve invested in state of the art design suites kitted out with the latest Apple Mac’s and design software. We’re proud to say we’ve got a bustling creative community with break out areas where students from other creative courses such as Music Technology and Performing Arts discuss projects over a latté.

We also like to pride ourselves on our fantastic links with local employers. Our students get the opportunity to work on real and live design projects to prepare them for the world of work - something today’s employers like to see on your CV. Our tutors can also support you to find a work placement in your chosen career so you can get a taste of what the job is like. You’ll also get to showcase your work in our end of year show, visited by design agencies and other local employers - the perfect opportunity to land yourself that job or university place.

And finally (what we hope is the icing on the cake for you) is that we’re keen that you experience as many creative influences as possible, so we’re always organising trips here and there for our students.
