The School of Art, Architecture and Design

Internationally recognised for high quality teaching, excellent facilities and unique opportunities.

The School of Art, Architecture and Design at London Metropolitan University offers courses across a broad range of subject areas: art (encompassing fine art, photography, English, creative writing, theatre and performance practice), architecture (including spatial planning and urban design) and design, which includes 3D design (fashion, textiles, furniture, product and jewellery), interiors and visual communication.

Learning through practice, playing with process and working with clients; students at the school gain real-world experience in both individual and collaborative projects, engaging with professionals, communities and companies. There is a strong emphasis in our studios on socially engaged architecture, art and design applied to both local and global contexts. The many specialist facilities you could find yourself using include wood, metal and plastic workshops, darkrooms and digital manufacturing technology. Our regular exhibitions, including the famous Summer Show, regularly attract large audiences.

Important update: We have taken the decision to remove the name of Sir John Cass from the title of the school. We recognise that the use of Sir John Cass’ name contributes to the redemption of a man without acknowledging the enormous pain he caused as a major figure in the early development of the slave trade, and the legacy of this pain. The use of his name is incompatible with our commitment to support the Black community and to actively oppose racism in all forms. Read the statement from our Vice-Chancellor.

Head of School Andrew Stone said: "I recognise and am proud that the School is known for its distinct, strong, socially engaged identity across all our subjects. The School name will change in consultation with our students, staff and alumni. The values, presence and energy we have established are present in more than a name and these will continue to be reaffirmed and to grow."

Embrace studio culture

A studio or unit is a study group with a particular theme or focus taken by our year two and three undergraduate art, architecture and design students and by postgraduate architecture students as part of their studies. Studios are led by both academic staff and professional practitioners, sometimes linking to external organisations or project briefs. At the start of each academic year, the leaders of each studio present their studio's themes, position and approach to allow students to choose from a wide range of issues, methods of working and types of project. During the year the studios come together for major events such as Celebration Week – when students present work in progress to panels of external critics – and summer exhibitions. Read about our 2019-20 studios.

Take up a short course

In addition to our undergraduate and postgraduate courses, which include courses validated by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), the School offers a wide range of short courses. Whether you are seeking a new skill, developing an existing one or simply want a bite-size taste of The Cass, we also offer you short courses. In our well-equipped studios students learn through making, experiment with process and technique and develop skills for personal and professional practice.
