Recruitment is now OPEN for courses starting October 2023

We are excited to announce that we are now recruiting students to our flagship European MA in Fine Art as well as our one-year Visual Communications and Sound Arts courses starting in October 2023.

If you’re looking for postgraduate study with international links, the rigour of a European qualification and an alternative arts approach, then we invite you to join us as a student and studio holder to learn, make, show and connect through TMS.

A Kingston University study of future skills[i] found that the top ten skills required over the next two decades are problem solving, critical thinking, communication, digital skills, analysis, adaptability, resilience, creativity, relationship building and initiative. Postgraduate learning at TMS will set you up not only with these in-demand skills but with the ability to continually develop your understanding of the interactions between art, society and nature that will be crucial to the future for all of us.

On joining TMS, our students become part of a creative community with multidisciplinary artists, writers, studio holders, residencies, gallery hire, technical facilities, open access courses and community initiatives.
