We believe that students should gain opportunities to work as researchers in practice and that academics should exploit their research interests and networks to introduce students directly into the world of professional practice. Our teacher-practitioner-scholars enjoy high-profile recognition in the fields of advocacy, curating, educating, exhibiting, making and writing.

  Regular field trips and input from visiting practitioners is an important feature of the programme. Artists and curators give talks, tutorials and help design and deliver projects or modules. There are also many opportunities for international exchanges in Europe and North America.  

As well as working with nationally and internationally recognised artists and curators, we have also built close links with galleries and other visual arts organisations. This not only contributes toward the cultural life of York, but also ensures students' work is available for sale and commission and offers galleries privileged access to high quality contemporary fine art work.
