Fine Art

The programme recognises contemporary art practice as being open and pluralistic which encourages dialogue between diverse disciplines; a multi-disciplinary/ inter-media approach enables students to work in a flexible manner that offers the maximum opportunity for individual practice; students are asked to engage with systems of enquiry that explore and embrace traditional exhibition formats alongside wider lateral models of production, distribution and dissemination; critical discourse on practice with an emphasis on analysis and self-reflection contributes to an understanding of contemporary art located within a larger cultural, social and political context.

Entry requirements

Applicants must hold a degree with at least 2.2 Honours standard or equivalent or demonstrate their ability to undertake the course through the accreditation of prior experiential learning (APEL). Applicants must be able to satisfy the panel at interview that their work is of a standard that will allow them to deal with the creative, intellectual and material rigours of the course.

Assessment methods

Formal assessment of the studio based modules takes place at key points within the course and include assessment of the artwork produced (80 percent) along with written and oral summaries (20 percent).
