The Course

Summary

The Extension Degree (Year 0) has been designed specifically for students from countries outside the European Union. Our aim is to enable you to work independently as an artist, and to generate and develop your own ideas.**What is Fine Art?**Within a university the term Fine Art describes an area of study in which students make and learn about contemporary art (this means art being made and exhibited today). Fine Art students might create sculpture, painting, video, photography, performance, sound art, installation, drawing, or any other mediums to describe their aesthetic and intellectual ideas. The ideas expressed within the artwork are understood to be as important as the medium which the artist has chosen to use.**Why study BA Fine Art (Extension Degree) at Goldsmiths?**- The degree provides an introductory 'Year 0' that enables you to progress onto the first year of either the BA Fine Art or the BA Fine Art & History of Art degree- It's a small, friendly programme, and we place an emphasis on one-to-one tuition and teaching in small groups - You'll be introduced to a range of technical and conceptual skills that will help you to develop your critical judgment and establish the basics of your future work, and you'll undertake English Language study where necessary- You'll make and study contemporary art in a dynamic, critical and interdisciplinary environment- We'll equip you with the skills that will help you develop independent thought and confidence in your practice, as well as transferable skills suitable for employment in the creative industries- You'll have your own studio space from day one, and will have access to excellent facilities including specialist art practice areas- All staff on the programme are practising artists, curators and writers, here to respond to the work that you make and to help you understand how it contributes to, and challenges, the critical debates that exist in the study area and beyond- Many Goldsmiths students go on to become internationally successful artists. Since 1990, former Goldsmiths students have been nominated for the Turner Prize more than 30 times, and have won the prize on seven occasions.
