Become part of a wider creative community at Arts & Communication Design and benefit from leading experts who are active in academic research and cutting-edge practice, explore outstanding arts facilities, and develop your skills and practice alongside a community of dedicated staff and students.
Join a collaborative network. As an Arts & Communication Design student you will have multiple opportunities for interdisciplinary interactions. Our wide range of joint degree courses enables you to develop your independent practice across two or more disciplines, while cross-departmental projects are actively encouraged, for instance Typography students regularly design the catalogue for the Art degree show.
Further opportunities to work together include the Destination Nature International Exhibition and Tate Exchange. Tate Exchange enables staff and students from across Arts & Communication Design to collaborate on a huge scale with artists from Reading and the general public at Tate Modern.
