    Stage 1

    The first stage provides a comprehensive introduction to fine art practice from the perspective of your chosen pathway. Having established a primary area of expertise you will be expected to evolve your mode of practice, either through a particular specialisation or through exploration of various media. In the final term the parameters of your work are extended with the External Project which requires you to participate in a project outside of the college environment.

    For part-time students this stage takes two years with lectures alongside full-time students during this time.

    Stage 2

    This is a pivotal period of development in which you will begin to take an increased responsibility for independent, self-directed work. You will also be expected to establish your own systems for producing and critically evaluating your work. During this stage you will also be required to consider your work in relation to the work of others and develop collaborative skills through a Group Curatorial Project.

    Stage 3

    This period of consolidation brings together what you have learnt throughout the course. There is now an emphasis on taking personal responsibility for the management of your practice, in preparation for a professional career as an artist. You will negotiate, develop and realise your own self-initiated programme of work.

    For part-time students this stage takes one year. In this fifth and final year, the part-time and full-time routes are integrated. This means that part-time students will have dedicated studio space at college and participate in group tutorials, seminars and crits alongside full-time students. Accordingly they will be expected to commit more time to their studies in the final year.
