Summer Residency

Each year the Students' Union offers the opportunity for one graduate of that year the chance to work from a central London studio for 12 weeks. 

The Residency opportunity is a fantastic way to develop your practice further ensuring that you still have a place to work post-degree and a space to think.

Alongside a free studio - the Residency gives access to a Materials budget of £500.00 and on-going practical and conversational critical support from the creative team based at High Holborn.

The selected student will also have coordination support for a final show at the end of September.
