Welcome to the School of Art and Design. The School is situated in what was, in the 19th Century, a hat factory.

Our academics and technicians are all active practitioners in their field, which allows the school to capture the global nature of art and design today. Staff are engaged with creative projects across the world, in Europe, USA and Asia; and have publications translated into Chinese, Korean and Hindu.

The creative arts here at the University of Bedfordshire are inspired by the character of our local heritage, and committed to a national imperative of economic and cultural development. Our people, places and products are industrial and creative catalysts.
