Postgraduate Study

Based in the heart of Manchester and offering dedicated spaces for Postgraduate study, Manchester School of Art has an extensive portfolio of MA, MFA and research degrees.

Our postgraduate community is led by a specialist team of academic staff who are also practising artists, designers and researchers, who work closely with the city and the wider professional world.

Many of our graduates go on to contribute to and shape the creative culture of Manchester and beyond with many becoming internationally renowned in their fields.

Our postgraduate student experience is designed to provide you with opportunities to hone your specialist technical skills, challenge your thinking and to make professional links with Manchester, the region and beyond.

There are opportunities to practice presentation, organisation and leadership skills as well as a wealth of other key skills necessary to translate ideas into tangible and innovative or entrepreneurial outcomes.
