It offers a wide variety of post-16, Foundation Degree, Degree and Masters courses in art, design and media. Industry-standard facilities include a specialist hot glass and ceramics workshop, dedicated virtual reality studio and cutting edge film equipment.

The College is located in the heart of Plymouth’s city centre and offers two kinds of undergraduate higher education programme - a three-year BA Honours or a two-year Foundation Degree with the option of a third ‘top-up’ year to convert a Foundation Degree into a BA Honours Degree.
