Scroll down to the sections below to stream our recorded talks anywhere, any time. On demand.

Once you have finished exploring this page, why not book a visit to our next Open Day, and come and see us in person, or join one of our virtual drop-in events, which usually take place on a Monday afternoon, where you can ask any questions you may have about making an application, what it's like to study here - or anything else that's on your mind!

We look forward to meeting you soon.

Welcome talks

Creativity doesn’t just happen in the studio, workshop or darkroom. It’s a way of life. A lot has changed here since we started out over 160 years ago, but this simple equation of making and living still shapes everything we do.

At Arts University Plymouth, we invite and inspire new modes of creative practice that redefine citizenship in the 21st century. Our undergraduate programmes examine the interconnectedness of the arts and society, exploring distinct disciplines, expanded fields of study, and the spaces emerging between, across and beyond.

Learn more about the creative undergraduate degrees we offer in the recorded Open Day talks below.

Undergraduate

Our postgraduate programmes invite you to explore and refine your creative practice by critically engaging with the cultural, technological and economic changes that are shaping our world.

Arts University Plymouth's dynamic, cross-disciplinary postgraduate community offers a rich environment that provides critical and technical expertise in a range of disciplines - take a look at some of our recorded talks from previous Open Days below and find out more for yourself.

Postgraduate

Our specialist post-16 study programmes offer ambitious creatives a dedicated pre-degree campus to develop their unique perspective, meet like minded people and gain the sought-after skills necessary to progress onto degree-level study or industry.

Find out more about the courses we offer and the resources available to students joining us at Palace Court and Palace Studios in the videos below.

Our tutors are practising artists and designers, and our technicians are highly skilled masters of their crafts. We're all making something. Some are working at degree level, while others are pre degree or postgraduate - all are contributing to the growth of the creative industries in the UK.

We're proud of our big, open studios, our diverse ecosystem of materials and our inspirational equipment and technologies. Browse through the recorded talks below to get a taste of what it's like to study here, and an insight into the facilities that are available to you at Arts University Plymouth.

Located on the coast of Devon in the South West of England, Plymouth is Britain’s Ocean City.

With a beautiful waterfront and harbour that includes a lovingly restored 1935 Art Deco lido, and plenty of stunning surrounding countryside, our thriving city offers a wealth of inspiration alongside vibrant culture and world-class events.

Plymouth's place in the history books is a true reflection of how much our city values international perspectives. Across this harbour have sailed Charles Darwin and The Beagle, Robert Falcon Scott bound for the Antarctic, and Ernest Shackleton’s Endurance. The world-famous Mayflower Steps on Plymouth’s historic Barbican mark the place that the Pilgrim Fathers set sail from on their voyage to the New World in 1620.

In the same adventurous spirit, Arts University Plymouth is dynamic, inclusive and forward-thinking. We welcome a growing number of international students and draw upon an art school ethos without frontiers.

Our Distance Learning courses allow students from all over the world to join a truly global community of creative learners, with study beginning in the Spring term (January) and the first year of study taking place remotely, so that you can study your first year online at home, in the studio or even using the facilities at an international host institution. After your first year of studying remotely, you will then progress to studying on campus here in Plymouth.

If you’re interested in creative study, we have options available to start in January 2022 on one of our Distance Learning BA (Hons) degrees, and in September 2022 on the rest of our Undergraduate BA (Hons) degrees, our Extended BA, our Postgraduate Masters Degrees and our range of Pre-Degree study options.

We offer something for everyone looking to further their artistic practice, and our Admissions team are on hand to help find the course that’s right for you.
