Art, Design and Fashion

It’s time to develop your talent. Students have travelled from around the world to be taught how to innovate and thrive in the world of art, design or fashion.

  • Harness your creativity in our studio spaces and expansive gallery within our brand-new Humanities and Arts building, set to open later in 2021.
  • We assign you with projects based on real-life scenarios and industry briefs so you are ready to shape the future landscape of the creative sector.
  • Unveil your work to hundreds of people at the Coventry University Showcase in your final year*.
  • Be industry-ready: Previous students have worked with the BBC, Ted Baker and Channel 4 on client projects.
  • Art, design and fashion students have gone on to work for Marvel Studios, the Royal Shakespeare Company, Aston Martin, GMP Design, New Look and ASOS.
