Our A-Z Guide to the UK’s 2016 Graduate Shows

As another year’s worth of young, talented graduates are cast forth into the creative industries to fend for themselves, we here at It’s Nice That thought we would be nice to compile a list of all the undergraduate and postgraduate degree shows (and some foundation, first and second year shows) that we could find, to give a handy reference point for people to see what is out there, and help their work be seen, reached and discovered.

Although Free Range and New Designers will be offering universities and colleges from across the country a London platform to showcase a selection of some of their best graduates, we were careful to include not just the exhibitions of the more famous London schools but of institutions nationwide.
