University of Northampton Degree Show 2019

Faculty of Arts, Science and Technology Degree Show.

Experience the work of our best creative minds at the 2019 Degree Show

The University of Northampton’s Degree Show gives you the chance to view the work of the next generation of creative talent.

One of the biggest events in the University’s calendar, it showcases the culmination of years of hard work from our final year students on our creative courses, including Photography, Fashion, Fine Art, Graphic Communication, Illustration, Architectural Technology, Interior Design and Product Design.

Open to the public, the week-long show often attracts art collectors who are keen to scout out the work of up-and-coming talent, and industry professionals looking to snap up the very best soon-to-be graduates.

This is the first year we are holding our Degree Show at our brand new Waterside Campus, and we think you’ll agree, the creative work on display matches the incredible, inspiring surroundings of our new home. Our Fine Art and Fine Art Painting and Drawing students will still be presenting their work at our St George’s Avenue site.
