Summary

Our MA Fine Art courses welcome creators from all spheres. Whether you’re an artist, designer, illustrator, architect, theorist or graduate from the broader humanities, you’ll explore your artistic practice, question what it means to be a contemporary artist, and develop your critical skills.

Whether you choose to study at UCA Canterbury or UCA Farnham, our skilled lecturers and sessional staff (who are also professional artists, filmmakers, curators and theorists) will challenge the way you think about the world and support you in your personal areas of exploration and research.

On both courses, you’ll learn through seminars, tutorials, guest lectures, workshops, study visits and critiques, with access to a broad range of specialist workshops where you can work with different mediums, supported by expert technical staff.

Both courses enable you to critically evaluate your own work and the work of others, and support you in developing your visual and conceptual thinking as you work on a personal research project.

Our Masters course in Fine Art at Farnham has strong London links – you’ll have the opportunity to exhibit and test your work in live contexts through exhibitions in the city, or by presenting your ideas at conferences. Covering all areas of artistic practice, the course has a particular strength in sculptural and expanded drawing, and invites students to think about how their ideas might be spatially realised in innovative, ambitious ways.

Students on our Canterbury-based MA have similar opportunities to exhibit work and test ideas through partnerships with regional arts organisations including Turner Contemporary, Whitstable Biennale, Strange Cargo and the Folkestone Triennial. One of the oldest and most highly respected MA courses in the university, this course invites students to explore their ideas through a range of media.
