Why Choose the Diploma?
Creative arts are an important part of life at MPW London. We have been running creative arts programmes for nearly half a century, earning an enviable reputation for the quality of our teaching and the excellence of our students’ work.
Our links with UAL and various other art-focused universities enable students to take part in workshops, lectures and portfolio reviews with senior academic staff. Combined with outstanding teaching facilities, dedicated tutors and a very popular annual art exhibition, it’s no surprise that our art students gain places on the most creative and competitive courses at art schools and universities.
Our well-equipped, purpose-built studios are light and spacious, allowing students to explore a broad range of different techniques to inform their work, taking it to resolved pieces. The Creative Arts department includes dedicated studios for art, graphics, ceramics, textiles and photography, plus a darkroom for traditional photographic print processing.
MPW London’s location in the heart of South Kensington means it is just moments away from iconic cultural attractions, where students can immerse themselves in the very best of British and global art and culture. These include the V&A, the world’s leading museum of art and design, the Saatchi Gallery, the Natural History Museum, the Royal College of Art, the Serpentine Gallery and the iconic Royal Albert Hall.
"I really like the location of MPW London, which allows me to visit many renowned galleries and museums at any time, and to participate in various art exhibitions to help me get inspired."
