Welcome to the A+D Excellence programme. Here we have compiled a number of resources, to help you explore all aspects of the Creative industries. The Collective is our main excellence activity, the project has grown to be an exemplary demonstration of student initiative and capability, now operating as a self-run, highly developed organisation. Together, students put their skills as Art & Design practitioners, having held exhibitions and producing 8 publications to date. Alongside this we have created the A+D Careers programme, helping you explore university/ apprenticeship options. You will find opportunities develop your subject interests and your employability skills … remember, universities and employers look for so much more than exam grades.
