The funds raised from the annual Auction are of enormous value to our Postgraduate Art students.  UK Postgraduate students are required to make significant financial investment in order to pursue their studies, covering the cost of fees, accommodation and subsistence without the benefit of the deferred government loan that is available to UK undergraduate students.

In previous years the proceeds of the Auction have supported the cost of hiring an external venue for the interim exhibition.  They have also contributed to students’ final degree show installation and catalogue, and a critics’ feedback session that has become a regular event at the end of the year.

We are immensely grateful to the artists who have donated works this year and in previous years for their generosity that has had such a positive impact on the students’ practice.

A big thank you also to our sponsors Daniel Ford International, our auctioneer Sotheby’s and everyone else who has supported the auction.

Over the years the Auction has become an increasingly successful and popular event, and has always proved to be an exciting and fun occasion.
