What will I learn? 

The course structure is based on a balanced curriculum that includes Fine Art studio practice, contextual studies, and professional practice.

In year one you will undertake a series of structured projects across a range of art media. From these you will be encouraged to become more self-directed in your studies, identifying and developing personal interests and concerns. Our course places emphasis on the professional realm of contemporary art and in year two we will provide you with the opportunity to undertake an off-site project or professional placement, embedded in a core module.

As you work your way towards your final self-directed project in year three, you will be encouraged to consider the larger themes, histories and ideas that contextualise the production and reception of your work.

By its very nature, contemporary fine art practice incorporates a range of approaches from the autobiographical and the personal, to issues and research-driven projects. Throughout your course of study, you will be encouraged to consider the wider social, political and cultural debates that inform and enrich contemporary art.

How will this course be taught?

At the end of each module or project you will submit your work for assessment and critique, and receive feedback and guidance in response. You will submit a combination of practical coursework, placement reports, presentations and essays.

The practical aspects of your work will culminate in the final year Degree Show. An estimated percentage breakdown of how your final grade is assessed is as follows: practical coursework 70%; essays/reports 20%; presentations 10%.
