Find out more about the TEF.

Students can explore their ideas through installations, 3D, photography, video and sound as well as drawing paint and print. Critical reflection and an understanding of contemporary practice is also an important part of the student experience. Professional practice is an essential aspect of the course and students will have the opportunity to take part in exhibitions, site-specific projects and short residencies. The course offers open-access to a range of workshops including print, 3D, video, photography, textiles and ceramics so that students can develop a single specialism or work across several areas. There is excellent tutorial support and access to teaching staff, with weekly group meeting and a minimum of three tutorials per term.
