Coinciding with the end of its stunning degree show, Manchester School of Art joins other Manchester Met departments for a university-wide open day, offering prospective students a glimpse of courses, facilities and academic life at the world-renowned creative institute. With tutor-led insight into the bleeding-edge artistic resources, endless array of workshops, and professional collaborations across various fields, visitors will enjoy a comprehensive experience of the school which produced national treasures like L.S. Lowry, Steve Coogan and Julie Walters.

Taking place across its five premises, including the RIBA Award-winning Benzie Building, the Manchester Art School open day will introduce guests to its breathtaking inventory of facilities and equipment following a £34 million investment in state-of-the-art hybrid studios, a newly-opened School of Digital Arts, and an extensive range of specialist workshops including glasswork, architecture, fine art and many others.

Emphasising their dedication to ‘experimentation and generating creative surprise’, a Manchester Art School course typically entails at least 25% of time spent working on interdisciplinary units alongside over 700 external industry partners – including Bruntwood and Manchester International Festival – while every member of the faculty is a practicing professional in their field, with established links to wider creative industries in the city and beyond.
