Degree Show 2017
Information for Schools
We welcome visits by school and college groups to the Degree Show.
If you are a group, school, or college who would like to attend our Degree Show, please feel free to make your arrangements to visit any day during the opening times of the Show. There will be maps and signage to help you locate areas of interest and plenty of graduates to talk to and interrogate!
Please be aware that we have an undergraduate open day on Wednesday 21 June which will make campus extremely busy.
Collaborative Sketchbook Challenge
School and college visitors are welcome to participate in our Collaborative Sketchbook Challenge at the Show. Pick-up a sketchbook and drawing materials from reception when you arrive, and use it to record your visit. Please return the sketchbook when you leave. There will be a prize for the best collaborative sketchbook.
We will be blogging, Tweeting and Instagramming the findings during the Show to share how each sketchbook develops over the visits.
You and your pupils are welcome to—
Talk to our students about their work and what it's like to study at Manchester School of Art.
Visit the School of Art café for refreshments or snacks.
Ask our reception staff if you need any help with directions.
But please take care near the work on display. Our students have been working hard for three years to produce their work and it is very precious to them. Look as much as you like, but please don't touch! Thanks.
And check with the nearest student invigilator before taking photographs of any work.
All exhibits are checked and where appropriate a written risk assessment constructed.
Risk assessments covering children on the premises can be downloaded here .
The University buildings are not designed to accommodate children under 12 years of age, so it is important your pupils are supervised at all times by staff accompanying the party, especially on stairwells. You may like to refer to our Policy on the Safety of Children on University Premises .
Parking & Access
There is no official coach parking available on the All Saints campus.
We recommend that you use the Benzie Building entrance around the corner at the end of Higher Ormond Street to access the Show.
Disabled access is good to all buildings with the exception of Grosvenor which because of its age has access only to the ground floor via the Benzie and Chatham buildings. For further details see our building access maps.
