Sunderland Creatives: our Art and Design degree shows

Home / Study / Discover Sunderland / Arts and Creative Industries / Degree Shows

Each year, the University of Sunderland’s School of Art and Design holds degree shows for the graduating class. This is an opportunity for students to exhibit their work publicly, which for many is their first major public exhibition. The degree show is a culmination of the hard work and dedication our students put into the final year of their course, where they build their professional practice, skills and experience. It is also a celebration of their creativity and the beginning of their exciting new journey as creative professionals.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, staff and students had to do things a little differently, as restrictions meant the degree shows couldn’t be held in person. Instead, the artwork was collated and presented in a new format: the Sunderland Creatives website.
