Comments about MA-Postgraduate Diploma Fine Art - At the institution - Bristol City - Bristol

  • Objectives
    This programme provides a unique opportunity for students from across Europe to work with internationally known artists in the development of their Fine Art practice. Students are encouraged to make the step from undergraduate to MA through the pursuit of in-depth critical and creative self-development based around the production of a substantial body of work. The programme supports a range of Fine Art practices and students have access to a wide range of facilities and learning resources including a specialist art and design library. The programme is 'modular' allowing the choice, time and flexibility to develop new skills and ambitions. This means you can adapt your programme of study to best suit your needs. You can also change whether you study full or part-time by changing the number of modules you study each year. Students are normally expected to have their own studio or workspace within the Bristol region.
  • Entry requirements
    We are looking for highly motivated creative students from a range of art, media and design backgrounds. Usually applicants will have a first degree in the Visual Arts but those with other academic qualifications or professional experience are also encouraged to apply. All applications are carefully reviewed and suitable applicants are invited to attend an interview. You would be expected to show examples of recent and/or current practices as well as examples of written work. You should also be able to demonstrate a good knowledge of contemporary Fine Art practice.

  • Course description

    The programme is made up of four modules:

    1. Fine Art Critical Review - 30 credits
    This module involves carrying out a review of your current practice and asks you to identify artworks, artefacts and texts appropriate to the contextualisation of this practice. This is supported by creative practice and seminar discussions based on the development of your work.

    2. Option Module - 30 credits
    The options are:

    -Research Methodologies
    -Enterprise in the Creative Industries
    -Research Methods

    3. Choose one of two options, either:

    Fine Art Practice A - 30 credits
    At this point you establish a project in which you explore, through appropriate conceptual and practical means an artistic theme of your own choice. Studio practice is supported by group critiques, individual tutorial support and a series of lectures delivered by visiting speakers.


    -Fine Art Practice B - 30 credits
    -Fine Art Practice C - 30 credits

    This module is identical to Fine Art Practice A but consists of two 30 credit modules spread over two semesters.

    4. Practice and Evaluation Document - 60 credits
    During the final module you work towards the exhibition/presentation and evaluation of a body of work that represents the level achieved in personal creative, critical and professional practice. The evaluation document should be a reflective and analytical document focusing on your practice.

    Teaching and learning
    The course will be delivered through a combination of a taught programme of lectures and seminars and independent learning. All students have access to the School's Media Centre, EPI Centre, 3D Centre, Print Centre and library.

    The programme will enable you to:

    -Develop creative and critical skills through the development and realisation of a substantial body of work;
    -Benefit from the experience of highly motivated staff, all of whom exhibit nationally and internationally;
    -Work amongst a lively community of young and established artists;
    -Gain valuable experience through studio visits, seminar discussions and group critiques;
    -Benefit from the opportunities generated by being part of the MA Fine Art programme eg exhibiting, networking and gaining professional contacts.

    The programme is assessed by coursework that is submitted for each module. This may take the form of essays, displays of completed artwork, notebooks, sketchbooks and journals. Pieces maybe assessed in situ or through appropriate documentation.
