Welcome from the Dean

Dr Fiona Thompson

Welcome to the Faculty of Arts, a place where we aim to make the magic happen. We specialise in nurturing the next generation of free, independent thinking creative practitioners. All programmes are highly relevant to a wide range of careers and futures in research, industry and academia. The Faculty prides itself on providing students with access to world leading industry expertise, excellent academic staff, and specialist facilities. 

We have so many programmes to choose from and within each programme is the opportunity to explore your creativity, stretch your imagination and explore the landscape of your subject area supported by experienced, enthusiastic and empowering colleagues.

We are an eclectic bunch of individuals, as you would expect from such a wide-ranging set of programmes, but what unites us is our passion for our subjects, our commitment to our students and our engagement with our subject and relevant industries – and we are grateful to all our external partners who complement our delivery and provide a variety of opportunities for students to put their academic studies into practice.

I would like to invite you to explore the Faculty of Arts website and then come and see us for real – we offer an exciting and vibrant experience plus you will find a very warm welcome on our beautiful campus.
