Summary

Our postgraduate Fine Art course is designed to provide a structured context for the development of individual Masters projects. It does this through introducing and exploring various strategies for making art, and nurturing an understanding of the ideas that make such practices meaningful. Questioning and exploring personal strategies for making art, we offer a reflective environment in which to understand the ideas and contexts that make your practice meaningful.

The cross-disciplinary structure of the course encourages connections with other modes of thinking and working.

Guest lectures and professional practice seminars will help you develop your personal networks. You'll work closely with local and national galleries and public arts organisations, including Turner Contemporary, Whitstable Biennale, The London Art Fair, Strange Cargo and the Folkestone Triennial, and be actively supported to develop and show work outside the context of the University.

With a well-established and strong history, our Master in Fine Art course is open to artists, designers, illustrators, architects and theorists (including graduates in the humanities). It's designed to foster new and innovative approaches to fine art study at an advanced level.

Building upon the practical and conceptual concerns of contemporary art practice, you'll develop an advanced ability to conceptualise and research in relation to your own practice.

We take great pride in ensuring that you have a fulfilling, engaging and inspirational experience. We're thrilled that this is reflected through our student satisfaction rates, which consistently reach almost 100%.

Working internationally with other universities, local and national galleries and museums, as well as specialist partners within industry, our course draws on a number of industrial links and expertise from a range of creative fields.

Postgraduates are given immense freedom with their art, but we do maintain an emphasis on developing professional networks to better understand your craft. Guest lectures and professional practice seminars will help you develop these, and you'll work closely with local and national galleries and public arts organisations, including Turner Contemporary, Whitstable Biennale, The London Art Fair, Strange Cargo and the Folkestone Triennial, and be actively supported to develop and show work outside the context of the University. We continue to work internationally with other universities, local and national galleries and museums, as well as specialist partners within industry, our course draws on a number of industrial links and expertise from a range of creative fields.

Our course is supported by seminars, tutorials, workshops, work-in-progress sessions, study visits and critiques. The progressive move from staff-directed to autonomous learning is an integral part of the structure of this course, too, as you identify, develop and manage your own Masters project.
