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.


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.

All exhibits are checked and where appropriate a written risk assessment constructed. Where risks are noted the risk assessment will be available with the exhibit.

Please contact the Outreach team if you require further information.
