About the School of Arts
My colleagues and I would like to welcome you to the School of Arts. The School of Arts is a friendly and energetic community; we get to know our students well during their time with us. There are opportunities to collaborate with students studying other subjects within the school. Students in Film, Fine Art, Foundation Art, Music, Creative Music Production, Digital Media Studies and Publishing enjoy sharing the same space.
We encourage our students to be entrepreneurial, to look for and create opportunities to expand their portfolios. There are many events which take place throughout the year, contributing to a lively atmosphere, from the art degree shows to concerts, field trips, film festivals and speaker events. Our students are involved in the community and regularly engage in activities in Oxford.
The strong showing by subjects within the School in the Research Excellence Framework translates into quality teaching and opportunities for further study. It is our aim to encourage a vibrant, inspirational learning environment and to provide the very best student experience. This is reflected in our success in the national league tables in recent years.
We look forward to welcoming you to the school and joining our community.
Dr Larry Lynch
Head of the School of Arts
