Graduate Programme

Founded in 2005, our annual Graduate Programme offers free studio space to graduates, helping them develop their ambitions and talents without financial hindrance for a year after leaving university.

One of our flagship creative development initiatives, our annual Graduate Programme has been running since the start. Since 2005, we’ve helped a number of young artists develop their ambitions and talents in that vital first year after graduation by offering a free 12-month residency in our studios. 

Our sponsored graduate spaces are split between the Design Studio and the Artist Studios. Running from September to August, applications can be made from any current undergraduate studying within a creative discipline.
