Each year the University of Wolverhampton celebrates the accomplishments of our Undergraduate and Postgraduate students with a degree show of their work. Our undergraduate and postgraduate shows form a cultural highlight of each academic year. As well as providing the perfect stage to showcase their achievements, they are an opportunity for graduating students to meet with potential employers and gain invaluable experience of exhibiting their work. Providing them with the perfect planform to springboard their careers as artists and designers.

  • Undergraduate Degree Show
    Our final year students celebrate the completion of their courses by exhibiting their work in an exhibition open to friends, family, industry and the general public each June. This has been a tradition in our building since 1969 with over 8,000 students taking part to date. 
  • Postgraduate Degree Show
    The success of our postgraduate (MA and PhD) students, are celebrated annually in a prestigious exhibition – held in two nationally renowned venues: Wolverhampton Art Gallery and the New Art Gallery Walsall.


Wolverhampton School of Art Graduate Showcase 2021

We are delighted to announce our end of year graduate showcase highlighting the work of our final year students in Art, Design and Screen based subjects.

 Degree Show 2021

Over the last few weeks we have had a film crew on site in the School of Art recording student experiences and their work. The last year, has undoubtedly been a huge challenge to students and staff in the School of Art. We have found ourselves working at home in make-shift spaces and often with limited materials and kit. Our staff and students have been hugely inventive in finding opportunities and outlets to keep learning live  - and this, in itself, is a testament to our creativity and resilience as a sector.
