Being an art student is an unmissable chance to explore your creativity and experiment with different art forms.

The University of SouthWales offers a supportive environment where you can challenge yourself artistically and technically. From ceramics to printmaking, from sculpture to painting, you can discover new ways to express yourself and your artistic ideas. 

You will be taught by and work alongside lecturers who are all practising artists with extensive professional experience, both of exhibitions and of exploring ideas through making.

Each year our art students have the opportunity to visit major collections of historical and contemporary art and design at home and abroad. Recent trips have included London, Venice, Madrid and Berlin.

Studying art at the University of South Wales means you can work in dedicated studio spaces at our Pontypridd Campus. You will be able to create a high standard of work that you can be proud of in our extensive specialist facilities: 3D workshop, print room and ceramic studios, all equipped with traditional and state-of-the-art facilities, including digital suites and a fully equipped lighting studio for photography.
