Our purpose is to nurture extraordinary graduates, practitioners and projects across the creative arts. This is underpinned by our vision to be a powerhouse of learning and discovery, whose research excellence is recognised nationally and globally.
Research is one of our major strengths, and we have a vibrant and progressive research base. We believe that research is fundamental to the pursuit of academic excellence within a specialist arts university. Growing an international research culture is central to the development of the courses that we offer, and every piece of research we embark on authenticates our core values of freedom, experimentation, collaboration, criticism and rigour.
