The Belfast School of Art is a world leading Art School located in the heart of the city of Belfast. The school continues to make a significant contribution to the field of contemporary art and design both nationally and internationally. Our students produce innovative work in a dynamic studio-led environment, supported by the very latest technology and staff who are passionate about art & design. Our Lecturers and Professors are practicing artists and designers actively involved in research as well as teaching. Much of their work is independently recognised as world leading and the school draws on its international networks to bring important figures in art and design to Belfast to work with students.
Our courses engage with the practice of contemporary art and design and the history and theories that inform it through our innovative research. Our students and the student experience are at the heart of everything we do. We are continually developing our courses in consultation with employers and in response to student feedback. I look forward to meeting you and hope that you will join us to be part of the Schools excellent reputation and history.
