A Place Where Creatives Teach Creatives

To the creators, entertainers, rule breakers and change-markers, this is your home, your campus, your place of discovery.

Sitting right on top of Hadrian's Wall and surrounded by beautiful parkland and rolling green lawns, our Brampton Road Campus is full of history, and buzzing with excitement, creativity and the sense of endless possibility.

Fully dedicated and equipped for everything arts and culture, Brampton Road is home to our Institute of Arts. Located minutes away from the sights and sounds of Carlisle city centre, it's also a train ride away from the stunning English Lake District, another UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Studying here you’ll be part of a community of like-minded creatives exploring, teaching and refining their natural talents. From fine artists, performers, producers, and illustrators to filmmakers, graphic designers, photographers and games designers, whatever your ambition, we've got your back. Follow the path of our Graduates and you too can become a Pixar or Disney animator, BBC producer, Conde Nast designer, TV presenter or award-winning artist.

Step into the vibrant world of culture, exploration, challenge, and excitement. This is where your passion becomes your career.

Three Reasons Why We Love Brampton Road

From Photography and TV, to Fine and Performing Art, our facilities at Brampton Road are incredible spaces, designed to encourage freedom of expression, whatever your chosen artistic discipline. All our fantastic workshops, studios, and stages are open to all of our students regardless of their course.

From drones and cameras to computers, printing, and machinery, our students have access to an array of equipment and software. Our campus is fully equipped to help you explore your artistic voice.

The Brampton Road Campus overlooks the beautiful River Eden in Carlisle and is surrounded by parkland. We're only a short walk away from Carlisle city centre, a vibrant place by day and lively by night, and a short trip away from the English Lake District, one of the most beautiful places in the UK. It's so beautiful that it has inspired the works of famous artists, poets, writers, and musicians.
