Bath School of Art and Design


From age old, artisan printing techniques to cutting edge 3D printing technology, our facilities are some of the best to be found anywhere in the world. In each discipline we encourage depth of subject understanding, yet a multidisciplinary approach, and the range of exceptional equipment and workshops in wood, metal, ceramics, textiles, print, photography, plastic, casting, paint, fashion and digital technologies support this experience.


The school’s main hub is Sion Hill campus, providing workshops, studios, seminar rooms, lecture theatre and the specialist library.

In addition we have a few other sites tailored to different specialisms. In the city centre, Fashion can be found in the enviable No 4 The Circus – just a moment away from the Fashion Museum. Dartmouth Avenue artists studios are in the city’s student quarter, and the research facilities are in the very impressive setting of Corsham Court.


With history dating back to the 19th century, Bath School of Art and Design has seen many changes over the years. The art school is an integral part of the university and is proud of its long history.


We believe in individuals, giving you space and time to think and do. Expand your horizons and deepen your knowledge. We want you to explore and experiment, and you’ll benefit from exceptional academic and technical support.

“My Fine Art degree at Bath Spa meant the difference between collecting ideas in notepads, and seeing them realised on gallery walls and beyond.”
