Hear It from the Students

Sunaina, BA (Hons) Fine Art student from Mumbai:

“The abundant support and guidance from the tutors gave me the opportunity to explore myself and my personal practice in more depth. I received regular opportunities to get involved with students from other courses, exposing me to new forms of working practices and enhancing my social confidence.

Educational visits to cities such as Berlin provided me a great insight into the highly-contested contemporary arts industry. First year has been a worthwhile experience and I look forward to continue with similar encouraging experiences in my second year at the University.”
