Since our foundation, we’ve championed emerging artists and architects. We want to celebrate the next generation by inviting students to enjoy our year-round programme of exhibitions for free!
We’re proud to run a free exhibition ticket scheme for students studying visual arts, architecture, art history and applied arts – our way of helping to inspire the artistic talent of the future. So sign up today and be inspired…
Can I join?
Anyone studying visual arts subjects for their A-levels or BTEC, and anyone studying history of art, architecture or fine and applied arts (including design and graphic design) at a higher or further education institution is encouraged to sign up.
How do I sign up?
It’s easy. Just register your details with us using the form below and when tickets become available for an exhibition, we’ll email to say you can book. There will be a limited number per show, which you can reserve online, up to two tickets per person. But get in quick to avoid disappointment!
What do I need when I visit?
All you need to bring with you on the day is your student ID and online transaction e-ticket.
If you’re under 16, you already qualify for free entry to all our exhibitions when accompanied by a fee-paying adult.
If you’re not an arts student but agree that talented students should be able to experience our world-class exhibitions free of charge, you can support this programme by becoming a Friend or Patron today.
Terms and conditions
This offer applies to students of visual arts, fine art, design, applied art, history of art, architecture and film only and studying in school, further education or university.
