  • Course description
    General programme structure

    We offer a student-centred and multi-disciplinary approach to study in Fine Art, including: sculpture, photography, printmaking, time-based and digital (film, video, sound, interactive and web design, performance, etc), painting and mixed-media combinations of any of these disciplines.

    The ethos of multi-disciplinary and interdisciplinary study is reflected in an integrated curriculum in which you are free to negotiate the focus and direction of your work, enabling you to construct an artistic identity within a context of critical debate. You may choose to continue with established ideas, processes and themes, or to re-orientate your practice in new directions, perhaps by making use of new technologies and materials, or by changing or combining disciplines. We expect you to establish a coherent and innovative practice that is grounded in technical skill, critical acuity and an ability to articulate ideas and concerns using an appropriate symbolic order or language.

    Within the MA programme the synergy between research and practice is very important and you will use many different research methods and approaches, both visual/material and textual. Research is also important as a stimulus and in providing an ongoing critical dimension to practice itself - generating ideas, images, processes and issues that can be integrated into new work.

    Detailed programme structure

    The Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip) stage consists of two practice modules and two other modules: conceptual and aesthetic frameworks for art practice; and research, reflection and proposal. These modules are designed to develop your practice and theoretical understanding.

    The Master of Arts (MA) stage consists of one module involving the production of a practice-based project (single or multi-disciplinary) with accompanying project report; or a text-based dissertation; or a combination of both
