Northumbria University has been the cultural back bone of the North East for many years, producing a wealth of creative graduates who have honed their skills under the watchful eye of experts in their field, be it successful artists, filmmakers, creative professionals or ground-breaking designers. The 2017 Guardian University League Table places Northumbria's Architecture and Design subjects within the top 10 in the UK. The league scores universities on high-quality teaching, staff to student ratio, employability and other key aspects of student experience. Northumbria University continues to grow as a cultural community, not only through its academic excellence, but through its progressive research and roots in industry.

REVEAL: Architecture reflects the studio culture and authentic practice taking place in the Faculty of Engineering & Environment, preparing students for a professional career in architecture. A key feature of the course is a constant engagement with practice on a local and national level with notable practitioners engaging in studio reviews, presentations and learning activities. This event demonstrates Northumbria’s inclusive and centred approach and showcases the high quality of learning and creativity that permeates throughout the work of our architecture students. 

REVEAL: Interior Architecture presents design project work from graduating students from Northumbria University. Student projects include exciting responses to live projects set by external clients in partnership with the programme and explore innovative approaches to building reuse and adaptation. The exhibition reflects the studio culture of the programme in preparation for careers in interior architecture and the wider design fields. This event demonstrates Northumbria’s inclusive and student centred approach and showcases the high quality learning and creativity that permeates throughout the work of our students.

REVEAL: Fine Art is a raw, exciting exhibition produced by our graduating Fine Art students, demonstrating an extremely high level of creative achievement. Each student cultivates an individual practice that is distinctively their own and reflects the diversity of contemporary ideas and culture, asks questions and provokes debate. The event is eagerly awaited each year attracting hundreds of visitors who are invited to view a new generation of artists as they make their distinctive mark on contemporary ideas and culture. 

REVEAL: Design presents work by Northumbria University’s graduating students across all of our Design disciplines.
