The Show - Art, Design, Film and Journalism

The degree show is a real highlight of the year. Last year, we welcomed thousands of visitors across our City Campus locations at Arnolfini, Bower Ashton and Spike Island to see the exceptional work of over 500 talented graduates from undergraduate and postgraduate art, design, film and journalism programmes.

View some of the amazing work from the 2016 show on our Tumblr blog and watch the video charting the journey of three UWE Bristol Creative Industries students.
