Art history outreach
Art history combines rigorous historical investigation with the visual arts. Whether your students already have an interest in art history, have enjoyed developing their own works and learning about the artists from case studies or are fascinated by history and culture, we will provide students with new ways of looking at the world. Discover why art from the past still matters to our modern society.

Get involved

School workshop

Do you want your students to experience university-level teaching within a familiar setting? A member of staff will visit to your school to provide a workshop or lecture on a topic related to your syllabus. Your students will gain valuable knowledge relevant to their current exams while simultaneously getting a feel for what it is like to learn as part of a research community.
