About Manchester School of Art

Manchester School of Art at Manchester Metropolitan University began life as a design school in 1838 – one whose aim was to support the textiles trade for which Victorian Manchester had become famous and where ideas, innovation and industry were inextricably linked.

Design may have been the School’s initial focus, but its remit soon expanded far beyond design – and it adopted the ethos of “many arts, many skills”. Almost 180 years later, that original idea holds true, the School of Art has grown into one of the largest art schools in the UK. We are also home to Manchester School of Architecture, rated as one of the world’s top ten (QS World Rankings 2019), and Manchester School of Theatre.

The School offers an extensive range of original and modern spaces and in 2013 the Benzie Building was opened, providing state of the art workshops, hybrid studio spaces and gallery spaces to support students studying subjects as diverse as fine art, animation, fashion, film, textiles and photography.

The School of Art is part of the Faculty of Arts & Humanities at Manchester Metropolitan University, which is also home to Manchester Fashion Institute and in 2021, the School of Digital Arts.
