Finally, I want to thank you for taking the time to visit and I wish you an enjoyable and inspiring day.”

The arts are how we express, explore and enjoy who we are. They represent our shared humanity, our aspirations and concerns for the future of our civilisation. They also represent the fasting growing area of our economy; they generate £10 million every hour; nearly one in ten British jobs are in the creative industries. Our programmes in media, film, journalism, dance, drama, music, creative writing, American studies and English language and literature prepare our students to play leading roles in these vibrant and dynamic cultures and careers. Our teaching is underpinned by ongoing professional excellence in filmmaking, theatre production and creative publication, and by high quality research – more than half of which was judged world-leading or internationally excellent in the most recent national assessment. We hope you’ll join us on this exciting journey.

EA

Our intention is for our graduates to be informed, insightful and innovative in people-focussed professions, so each of our degrees engages with theory, policy and practice in a wide range of modules, and the Faculty has numerous opportunities for work-based learning and volunteering in the UK and overseas. Our staff are highly skilled practitioners who also undertake research in education and social policy and practice, and we take pride in the quality of our teaching and support for students: our teacher training programmes are rated as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted and our academic studies in education are consistently rated in the top 10 universities in England for overall satisfaction. We would love for you to join us!

EXPLORE WINCHESTER JUST OVER ONE HOUR AWAY FROM LONDON BY TRAIN, WINCHESTER IS A CHARMING CATHEDRAL CITY WITH A RICH HERITAGE AND VIBRANT CONTEMPORARY CULTURE.

Many celebrity chefs have opened eateries in the city including Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, Raymond Blanc and Rick Stein. For those wanting to shop until they drop, immerse yourself in the bustling high street for the well-known shops, and explore the wealth of independent boutiques and more unique shops nestled among the intriguing back streets.

ARTS, MUSIC AND CULTURE The city boasts a year-long calendar of cultural events including literary festivals, food and drink fairs and a summer street carnival known as the Hat Fair.

The city – which was King Alfred the Great’s capital of England – has proud links with writers Jane Austen and John Keats. It is home to the impressive Great Hall with its legendary Round Table, the world-renowned Winchester College and Chapel, and the English Heritage site Wolvesey Castle.
