In examining the mutable relationship between art and learning, the role of creativity and making in education is fully explored in how the arts are taught.

We encourage diversity in thinking and making, acknowledging the potential in material exploration, collaborative working, cross-pollination of ideas, and the exploration of new and vital concepts. Critical inquiry and practice-based exploration are central to the programmes, helping you to make dynamic and challenging work that resonates and reflects your key concerns in light of current national and international dialogues.

The Creative Education from Arts University Plymouth is appropriate for a wide range of subject specialists: teachers at all levels from primary to further and higher education, managers and support workers in formal education; current and aspiring lecturers, as well as creative and community practitioners. The program accepts learning as a process that takes place throughout our entire lives, where it extends beyond formal places of learning into communities, libraries, museums, nature, workplaces, social & health care and the third age.


Alumni of our Graduate School pursue careers in the fields of fine art, craft and design, as practising artists, teachers, curators, and as gallery,theatre and technical professionals. Others go on to prepare for doctoral study, and set up viable projects as socially engaged and community-based practitioners.

The second module offers an opportunity to test out the practices being investigated by individual students within an appropriate, live setting.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • The comprehensive Masters structure, which is shared across our specialist programmes, enables our postgraduate students to focus on creative strategies and processes through four sequential modules which support you in investigating, testing and developing your ideas. 
  • The core tuition focuses on training, research methodology, critical thinking, design, practice-led research methods and professional and conceptual frameworks, with an opportunity for negotiated study under specialist supervision for MFA and MA by Research students.
