Courses at Liverpool School of Art and Design (LSAD) combine innovative approaches towards teaching and learning together with training in the practical knowledge and skills needed to enable you to succeed in your chosen career beyond graduation.
Research and scholarship inform the curriculum at all levels to ensure that what we teach reflects the condition of our disciplines in the world today. To this end we do not distinguish between the teaching commitments of professors and lecturers; you will be taught by our most senior staff right from the start of your degree. You will also benefit from the close and embedded relationships that the school has with relevant employers and organisations such as Tate Liverpool, FACT, Liverpool Biennial, RIBA and National Museums Liverpool. Some of the staff teaching you will be working across LJMU and these institutions, ensuring the relevance of our delivery to professional organisations.
Our undergraduate programmes guarantee you a minimum of fifteen hours contact teaching per week divided between lectures, seminars, tutorials, studio supervisions and workshops. As well as individually tailored and personally oriented tuition in your field, there are substantial opportunities for work-related learning.
LJMU recognises the importance of teaching an internationalised curriculum, which is why, regardless of your nationality, you will find our courses relevant to your needs and aspirations. As well as developing an awareness of issues impaction upon the world today within our courses there are opportunities for exchange study with overseas institutions and we hold a growing number of overseas field trips; students have recently travelled to Berlin, Athens, Barcelona, Florence, Madrid, Reyjkjavik, New York, Venice, Lisbon, Porto, Shanghai and Eindhoven.
