It allows them to study painting, sculpture and fine art media from undergraduate right up to PhD level.

Students can also participate in international exchange programmes with other renowned art schools including the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and Germany’s Stadelschüle.

Visual artist Tacita Dean, sculptor Antony Gormley and the late filmmaker Derek Jarman are just a few of the notable names who have studied at Slade. Many alumni have also forged careers as leading academics and researchers in the field of fine art.
