Our MA Fine Art Master’s course is firmly founded on the consideration of art practice, in whatever form it takes (drawing, painting, sculpture, print, photography, installation, lens-based media, performance, participatory and interdisciplinary practice) and in whichever circumstance it occurs.

Art is considered in relationship to philosophy, art history and theory, contemporary discourse and global contexts thus establishing critical frameworks in which artists make work in the contemporary world. We have strong links with art galleries and arts communities.

This stimulating programme offers you a specialist education in fine art with both core and option modules that help develop your practice whilst introducing you to contemporary debates in art history, art theory and philosophy mindful of art’s global contexts.

It will enable you to take risks, be imaginative and to speculate on the development of your work. It builds your confidence, enhances your critical and analytical skills and prepares you for a career in the creative sector.

Numerous alumni have gone on to be highly successful: presenting work at the Venice Biennale and becoming a Turner Prize judge. Uniquely, you will be encouraged to personalise your learning therefore preparing you for life as a professional artist or PHD researcher. There is scope to work on external live projects.
