Our art and design courses don't just train you, they promote alternative ways of thinking, making and communicating; they provide you with space, tools and inspiration to develop your creative practice and a clear career path. You'll get expert teaching from active practitioners and researchers, and time to experiment in fully equipped studios and workshops. At the same time, you'll learn to work on real-world art and design briefs through our links with commercial clients and the creative industries.
Based in our historic Old Post Office building, the institute teaches undergraduate and postgraduate courses in fashion, jewellery and metalwork; graphic design and illustration; product and packaging design; and fine art. Here you'll be at the heart of an energetic creative community, with active student societies, regular events and guest lectures, and close contact with Sheffield's wider arts scene.
