As a School, we work collaboratively, nationally and internationally with industry and cultural partners, and local partners include the Museum of Fashion, the Holburne Museum and with a wide range of industry partners and projects such as Tate Exchange and the Trinity Buoy wharf Drawing Prize. Facilities in the School are exceptional, with a well-stocked specialist Art and Design library, a wide range of craft and digital equipment within workshops, labs, and dedicated studios. In September 2019, the School will benefit from a new £32M building on the riverside in the city centre of Bath which will include exhibitions and events spaces.
