Support

Here at WITT Art, Design and Media we like to get to know each of our students. All of our tutors are very approachable and happy to chat. We believe that successful study requires appropriate support for the student, and this starts with knowing who you’ll be working with during your time at WITT; your tutors. We are proud to have the newest art facility in the country and some of the best folks in the country working here.
