Transforming Arts and Humanities

At Coventry University, work is always underway to transform our teaching and student experience. A key part of this transformation is the highly anticipated refurbishment of our new Arts and Humanities building, which is planned to open at the end of 2022.

Students from the Faculty of Arts and Humanities (FAH) can benefit from our brand new learning spaces and will be able to collaborate better than ever in our new facilities, where we use a mixture of innovative teaching methods.

Creative spaces and leading edge facilities

The new facilities will feature two immersive studios, which will include:

  • Augmented Reality (AR)
  • Virtual Reality (VR)
  • Mixed Reality
  • 3D motion capture
  • Binaural sound capability.

We are also providing more space to learn, design and make, including a hyper-studio for very large-scale projects, a new gallery space alongside an events atrium and café, where staff, students and artists can showcase their work to members of the community.

Our three schools within FAH promote collaboration and innovative uses of specialist resources in response to the increasingly diverse creative technologies of the future global workplace. For students from the School of Art and Design and the School of Media and Performing Arts, high-quality specialist studios and workshops will be available for film, photography, printmaking, wood, metal, plastics, ceramic faber clay and digital education.

Students from the School of Humanities are also well catered for, having full access to our immersive spaces and the hyper-studio, where we will bring students together in an inspiring space to tackle the most important real-world challenges of our time.

Enabling opportunities for collaboration

Our courses often provide opportunities for students to engage in external or collaborative activities, such as working with the local community, consulting projects, industry briefs, Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) and encouraging learning across disciplines. Our new facilities make this kind of collaboration easier than ever, and build upon key employability attributes. By having the opportunity to access the latest technology, research and theory, and applying it to real-world projects, students can graduate as industry professionals, confident in the skills they’ve learnt.

The project will also aim to inspire diverse audiences and participants locally, nationally and internationally with new ways of engaging with creative practice and education.
