History of Art: learning, teaching, research

We offer a stimulating place to study with first-class teaching and excellent facilities including the prestigious Djanogly Art Gallery, as well as strong links with Nottingham Contemporary, New Art Exchange, Derby QUAD, and other national and regional art institutions. In the 2015 National Student Survey, we achieved 100% overall student satisfaction.
