Mainstream painting and drawing equipment can be purchased from the University shop, which has a wide range of art materials such as oil paint, charcoal and quality papers. All materials are competitively priced and our shop is run by our Student Union with canvas and paint sourced from the cheapest suppliers of good quality materials. A quantity of acrylic primer is provided free in our specialist canvas preparation area. Many alternative materials can be locally sourced for free and we have excellent industry contacts in the region.&#160;​</p><p style="text-align&#58;justify;">Costs for study visits vary but are always competitive due to a combination of off-peak travel, group travel and subsidy. UK trips would typically cost approx. £10.00 and are rarely more than £50.00.</p><p style="text-align&#58;justify;">European international trips would typically cost in the region of £250-£450 with a long haul trip such as Hanoi or Calcutta in the region of £800-£900. In some instances students have helped subsidise this further by group fundraising activities.</p><p unselectable="on"><span unselectable="on" style="line-height&#58;1.6;"><br></span></p><p unselectable="on"> <span unselectable="on" style="line-height&#58;1.6;">Please see below the 2015 Subject Futures Week video, which highlights just some of the creative industry guests who attended to share knowledge and insights with students about the realities&#160;of working and life after University.&#160;</span></p><p unselectable="on">​<span unselectable="on" style="line-height&#58;1.6;">&#160;</span></p><div class="ms-rtestate-read ms-rte-embedcode ms-rtestate-notify" unselectable="on"><div class="Flexible-container" unselectable="on"> <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https&#58;//www.youtube.com/embed/9F82tgX_hdo?rel=0" frameborder="0"></iframe> &#160;</div> &#160;</div><p unselectable="on"> <span unselectable="on" style="line-height&#58;1.6;">Please also see the&#160;<a href="http&#58;//youtu.be/0nDoJz9pZ4E" target="_blank" unselectable="on">2013 Subject Futures Week video</a>​ and the&#160;<a href="https&#58;//www.youtube.com/watch?t=10&amp;v=Hf3JHqNKikk" target="_blank" unselectable="on">2014 Subject Futures week video</a>,&#160;with many more exciting guests from across the creative industries.​​​</span></p>BA (Hons)W120Undergraduate937http://catalog.uon-dmz.local/sites/catalogs/UoN/Lists/Courses/AllItems.aspxFalse
