Summary

Plymouth College of Art has been granted full university status and formally recognised with the new title of Arts University Plymouth, following approval by the Privy Council. This makes us the City of Plymouth’s first specialist arts university.

The title of Arts University Plymouth signifies a change to the way that the world will see us, our position within the sector and the mobility of our graduates; but not a change in the way that we see ourselves or what we do. Arts University Plymouth will build upon the existing strength of our unique culture and incredible community; we have no plans to change the specialist focus of the work we do together. The name Arts University Plymouth will appear on our qualifications, making it easier for employers and peers to recognise that our students were taught at a leading specialist arts university.

In May we were awarded the Best Small or Specialist University at the 2022 WhatUni Student Choice Awards, coming top in a list of well-respected specialist UK universities, based on unbiased and honest reviews from students across the UK, in a category that highlights the quality of our provision as a specialist creative university.

Our MA Printmaking programme provides you with the opportunity to explore experimental and innovative approaches to the discipline, as well as its relationship to wider contemporary practices.

Ethos Printmaking is a field where traditional practices co-exist with and enter into dialogue with contemporary technologies, creating new understanding of the role of image as artefact and multiple. Our programme allows you to explore the wide range of practice models that are available to the contemporary printmaker, examining the notion of printmaking as research and activism, and developing your ideas so that you can engage with the discipline’s wider research community.

Outline Through individual experimentation and exploration, we encourage you to test the boundaries of fine-art printmaking practice, to work in traditional and digital media, and to develop ambitious projects through research, debate and interaction with wider audiences and communities. You will have access to our print studios, allowing you to explore a range of autographic printmaking processes, and enhancing your critical understanding through technical experimentation, research and debate in a supportive, professional and critically engaged environment. Taught delivery within the programme provides a mix of discipline-specific methods and cross-disciplinary approaches that can be applied across creative and commercial sectors. Our shared module structure allows you to develop a dialogue with creative practitioners across the Graduate School.

Supported practices This programme explores a spectrum of approaches to traditional and experimental printmaking, including intaglio, lithographic print, relief print, screen printing, letterpress and digital processes.
