The College of Fine Arts and design was established in 2001. The College currently offers undergraduate programs in Fine Art, Fashion Design with Textiles, Graphic Design and Multimedia, and Interior Architecture and Design. All the Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree programs follow a four-year full-time mode of study, which includes a common first year Foundation in Art and design. On successful completion of the Foundation year, students select, through help and negotiation with their tutors, the subject area in which they wish to specialize for the next three years of study. The College attracts faculty and staff from across the worlds that are active practitioners and/or engaged in research. The College promotes links with the cultural and creative industries and the local community and students have the opportunity to meet and work with established artists, designers, businesses and organizations.
