The programme will provide you with the opportunity to engage in taught studio-based research, under-pinned by a strong theoretical awareness of contemporary practice.

It will encourage critical reflection on personal practice and awareness of the relationship that your work may have to an audience. The programme will help you connect with a wide diversity of cultural industries on a national and international level. It will enable you to consider aspects of curatorial practice and the public reception art works involving general and specialist audiences.

We are looking for applicants who are strongly motivated, reflective and independently minded. Contemporary Fine Art practice embraces a wide and diverse spectrum of activity and you will have access to well-staffed and resourced workshops and studios. We place great value on interdisciplinary debate that utilising the collective knowledge and experience of both students and staff. We are also interested in non-standard applications from other art and design disciplines who have a skill set they wish to develop in a Fine Art context. We can offer bridging studies, if necessary, in the Autumn semester for those seeking a January start.
