Bradford College is home to two of the city’s most creative schools – Bradford School of Art and The Northern School of Creative Industries. Situated in a listed Victorian building with inspiring architecture inside and out, blended with modern yet characterful gallery spaces, the two schools are perfect for students who have that creative edge.

Having recently undergone a refurbishment, students learn in a fresh and motivating environment and have access to some of the best facilities in the country including; specialist textile and printmaking equipment, studio space, an art gallery, the latest film and photography equipment and a café bar where you will often find the music students delivering some lunch time jazz. Not only are the facilities top notch, the teaching and support is outstanding, the tutors are expert practitioners in their field and are valued highly by their students.

The schools offer an array of courses on a full or part time basis to suit people of all ages and different levels of expertise. Ranging from A-level, BTEC, Undergraduate and Postgraduate to Professional Short Courses, you are sure to find a course to fit your needs. Bradford School of Art offers courses in; Art & Design, Ceramics, Fine Art, Fashion, Graphic Design, Illustration, Interior Design, Life Drawing, Photography, Printmaking, Surface Design and Textiles. The Northern School of Creative Industries offers courses in; Film, Music, Performing Arts, Theatre and is one of the few colleges in the country to offer a specialist course in Media Makeup and Special Effects.

The Schools are still taking applications for courses starting this September which means it’s the perfect opportunity for any students who currently hold a UCAS application and have been entered into UCAS Extra to apply. UCAS Extra is a second chance for students who haven’t yet got a place at University for September 2016 to make a new university or course choice and with careers in the Creative Industries booming, there’s no better time to become a student at Bradford School of Art or The Northern School of Creative Industries.

For a chance to get a feel for the two schools, you might want to attend one of their free Saturday Art & Design, Theatre or Film Clubs that takes place every Saturday during term time from 10.30am until 12.30pm in the Lister Building at Bradford College.
