Course Leader for Photography and Video Art and Senior Lecturer in Visual Arts Practice Nigel Grimmer commented: “It’s great to see our students doing so well, especially before they even graduate.

“Arthur is a talented ƹƵand it’s wonderful to see that all his hard work is being rewarded and paying off.”

“Our students put on exhibitions in the ƹƵ as part of their degree in their first year and create their own galleries in Luton in their second year. This then enables them in their third year to apply to venues and competitions to secure exhibitions of their own.”
