Understand the field of print through making, exhibiting, publishing, discussion and writing.
In this expanded field, the histories of media, craft, mechanical and digital (re)production are all open to question. Embracing very different ways of thinking and making, we engage with the digital and physical circulation of images. We explore the differences of virtual space vs hard copy, questioning how shifts in the register of different media affect our lives.
You may use archives, image and text, appropriation, and work in all media, from books to installations, webpages to hard copies. Why, in the context of digital ubiquity, is there still interest in direct material engagement with ink and paper? What value does the hand-drawn trace have in our digital age? Are there already too many images in the world? Why make more?
We aim to develop your potential, encouraging both thinking through making and conceptual understanding of how work communicates. Staff (all practising artists) and students work together within this dynamic flux of difference, questioning established narratives.

Candidates are selected entirely on merit and applications are welcomed from all over the world. The selection process considers creativity, imagination and innovation as demonstrated in your portfolio, as well as your potential to benefit from the programme and to achieve high MA standards overall.
You’re expected to have completed a BA degree. In recent years, students have come from fine art, printmaking, painting, sculpture, photo media, conservation, illustration, design, textiles, architecture and interactive arts courses. While many students enter the course after years of independent work, we also accept students directly from undergraduate courses.
We are looking for candidates who are excited about the potential of engaging with the College-wide peer group, and making the most of the educational opportunities the Programme offers. You may not have made prints before but should have a keen interest in the nature of the multiplied image and the desire to investigate the ideas we engage with.
