Manchester School of Art offers an extensive range of spaces, workshops and equipment, creating a vibrant and creative learning environment. In addition to our state of the art facilities, we also embrace the traditional, allowing our students to realise even their most ambitious artistic visions.

Our postgraduate community is led by a specialist team of academic staff who are also practising artists, designers and researchers, who work closely with the city and the wider professional world. Many of our graduates go on to contribute to and shape the creative culture of Manchester and beyond with many becoming internationally renowned in their fields. Graduates include Sarah Burton OBE, L.S. Lowry, Julie Walters, Steve Coogan, Liam Spencer, Thomas Heatherwick, Peter Saville, Martin Parr, Brian Cosgrove, Mark Hall, Professor Malcolm Garrett and many more.
