Connect to Manchester School of Art

Last week we held some online events for students who have an offer from the School of Art. Prospective students had the opportunity to watch short presentations from the Heads of Art and Design, and the Director of Studies from Media and to ask the academics their questions.

Catch up by watching the recording of the webinar.

We also went on a tour of the School of Art’s amazing new Benzie Building, guided by one of our Third Year Interior Design students.

Watch the tour and marvel at the School of Art’s collaborative facilities, open to all Art students! 

Keep an eye on the blog, as we will be rounding up our Connect events from some of the other faculties!

 

Behind the scenes of an MMU International live tour!

I’ve written about Connect to MMU before on this blog. Connect to MMU is a series of informative and interesting online events which give international students the chance to learn more about MMU and being a student here. As part of Connect to MMU we run live tours of our faculties to give prospective international students an insight into where and what they might study.

Yesterday we broadcast a live tour of the School of Art’s impressive new Benzie Building. You can see a recording of the tour here.

Although the Benzie Building is the new School of Art building, there are excellent facilities for art students in the Grosvenor and Chatham buildings too. For example, the Chatham building has a glass hot shop, ceramics and plaster, wood, metal and chemical workshops, laser cutting, a 3D printer, animation suites, photography resources including a darkroom, art studios and the amazing Holden Gallery.

Zee is our friendly student tour guide, and he loves to show prospective international students around MMU. Check out the pictures below for a sneak peek behind the scenes of our School of Art live tour!
