Welcome to the School of Arts a leading educator of creative practice, with a trusted reputation and strong ties to Bristol's creative sectors. We’ll immerse you in the city’s dynamic arts and cultural scene.
Located across two campuses, the School is spread across Bristol’s creative ecosystem. If you're based at City Campus, you'll have access to specialist maker spaces, industry-standard studios and production facilities at our Bower Ashton site. And it is also home to two international contemporary art centres, Arnolfini and Spike Island, complete with inspiring city centre studio spaces to enjoy.
