Art, Design and Fashion

If you want a place where you’ll have the free­dom to let your imag­i­na­tion run wild, and the sup­port to allow your cre­ative tal­ents to come alive, you’ve come to the right place! At Not­ting­ham Col­lege you will work and learn along­side pro­fes­sion­al and suc­cess­ful artists and design­ers in the heart of Nottingham’s Lace Mar­ket, part of the city’s Cre­ative Quarter. 

Many of our for­mer stu­dents are now suc­cess­ful and nation­al­ly-renowned mak­ers, design­ers and busi­ness own­ers, so we’ve got a strong track record in sup­port­ing stu­dents to reach their full potential. 

We offer cours­es from Lev­el 1 to degree-lev­el, so you’ll have plen­ty of oppor­tu­ni­ties to progress with us! 

All our stu­dents enjoy the use of our six-storey for­mer lace mill at 25 Stoney Street, which is ded­i­cat­ed to art and design, includ­ing exten­sive stu­dio spaces, a print room, pho­to­graph­ic dark room and stu­dio, 3D work­shops, a ceram­ics work­shop and indus­try­s­tan­dard dig­i­tal facil­i­ties. Fash­ion stu­dents use the orig­i­nal lace lofts up in the Adams Build­ing, where tex­tiles her­itage meets the future of fashion. 

You’ll have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to show­case your work to the pub­lic and indus­try pro­fes­sion­als at our art and design exhi­bi­tion and cat­walk fash­ion shows, which are a real high­light of the year.

We have a close work­ing rela­tion­ship with UAL, with stu­dents reg­u­lar­ly pro­gress­ing to study there as well as oth­er renowned uni­ver­si­ties across the coun­try, includ­ing the world-famous Cen­tral Saint Martins.
