Fine Art

Learn how to further develop your creative inquisitiveness with our MFA Fine Art programme, taught exclusively by staff who are practising artists, curators and writers. As your teaching will be carried out by fine art experts, you will benefit from research-led teaching through theoretical texts and publication projects, and industry links which allow you to engage with exhibition and curatorial initiatives. Our state-of-the-art studio is also open 24 hours a day, giving you the time to work on your projects when it suits you. Within the art department, you will be welcomed into a social environment which holds regular events, performances, screenings and shared discussion across disciplines. Through our external exhibitions, symposia and workshops, you will also have the chance to exhibit in Japan, China and South Korea. As a student on our master's course, these activities create a vibrant and intellectual setting for you to expand your knowledge alongside staff and PhD students. If you are considering taking the path into teaching in the future, you will benefit from our postgraduate teaching assistant scheme which offers you the opportunity to gain mentored teaching experience on our undergraduate programmes while you study. To further your experience, we have an associate partnership with the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London, which gives you membership for events, internship opportunities and seminar space at their premises. **Careers** The MFA Fine Art gives you the time and expertise through teaching which can allow you to pursue a professional career as an artist. Should your interest lie in teaching, our postgraduate teaching assistant scheme will give you the skills necessary to build a career in classroom, museum or gallery education. You may also want to continue your education after this programme, and continue onto a PhD to explore your research interests in contemporary arts like a number of our previous students. **Modules** - Studio practice - Art, power, politics - Mapping the art world - Dissertation
