Fine Art

The course combines studio work with a theory-based programme of lectures and seminars led by internationally renowned practising artists and history of art scholars respectively. A research-centred programme, students are admitted into painting, sculpture or fine art media (which includes electronic media, photography, print, film and video).

Entry requirements

Applicants are required to hold a 1st degree in fine art at 2nd Class undergraduate level or above, or its overseas equivalent, and are required to satisfy the school that they have an appropriate level of academic achievement. Exceptionally, an applicant with a 1st degree in a related subject (such as art history) will be considered, but evidence of a high level of achievement in the chosen studio discipline will also be required.

Assessment methods

A studio-based programme, students develop their work with tutorial/technical assistance according to need. The taught component is delivered through lectures, seminars, tutorials and workshops, but primarily demands individual investigation. Year 2 prioritises supervised individual research. Assessment is by exhibition of final studio-work and history and theory coursework including a dissertation.
