At Camberwell we believe passionately in social citizenship, whilst maintaining the view that the arts must remain committed to the rewards of free inquiry and experimentation.
Camberwell’s studio culture and strong sense of community will encourage you to rethink current creative practices and cultivate your own style.
Camberwell has courses in design and fine art. With around 1,600 foundation, undergraduate and postgraduate students it's one of London's smaller art colleges.
Our courses will help you develop your own ideas through creating work with guidance from our expert staff, encouraging open dialogue with tutors and technicians and developing creative industry connections.
