School of Art
Students at the School of Art are part of a vibrant and culturally diverse community. Our students are actively engaged in organizing exhibitions, attending visiting artists’ talks and social events and meeting with student groups. Many of these activities extend beyond the campus, including pop up projects and student exhibitions in artist run centres, as well as volunteer opportunities and internships. These are often transformative experiences that bridge the gap between academic and professional life.
From funding opportunities to safety guidelines, we're here to make sure you have what you need to thrive as a SoA student.
Join a community of like-minded students, show off your work in the Student Gallery, join a club and make connections.
