I love working in such a creative environment. It is great to be surrounded by art and ideas every day and I love seeing how students find their feet and develop into independent thinkers and confident practitioners.”

All staff at Manchester School of Art are practicing professionals and researchers in their fields, either as creative artists and designers, or through theoretical approaches to their subject.

Most staff belong to at least one Research Group within the Manchester School of Art Research Centre, and many regularly work with external companies and organisations or carry out funded research or projects.
