Course summary

This four-year programme comprises three areas of practice: painting, fine art media and sculpture, with an integrated history and theory of art component. All of our practice-based staff are practising artists and scholars with significant exhibition and public profiles. Our students also benefit from the vast cultural resources that London offers.

The programme comprises three practice areas: painting, fine art media and sculpture. The programme is practice-based and you are expected to develop your own work with tutorial and technical assistance from a specialist team of academic and technical staff. Seminars and tutorial groups ensure that the three practice areas have a forum for the exchange of ideas. You will also benefit from a programme of visiting artists, gallery visits (when possible) and other events that aim to develop exciting and rigorous debate. Areas are mixed together in the studio spaces (subject to Covid regulations) providing a lively cross-fertilisation of ideas and practice.

Your learning

The BA is practice-based, with an emphasis on self-initiated work. This is supported by one-to-one and group tutorials, across-school events, critiques, contemporary art lectures and the History and Theory of Art courses. Technical inductions, workshops and one-to-one technical instruction are provided according to each student's academic needs.

Assessment

You will be assessed through tutorial reports, annual assessment of your practice-based work, and coursework in History and Theory of Art. Your final assessment will be based on a combination of your History and Theory of Art coursework results and a final exam.

Careers

The programme aims to:

  • develop the individual intelligence, research interests and skills you bring with you to the school
  • develop your critical awareness and understanding of fine art and its contexts
  • provide the intellectual and practical resources to enable you to realise your creative potential as a professional artist.

Most Slade graduates become professional artists but you will leave UCL with a range of skills to branch out into a variety of careers in the creative professions and beyond. You will have built up practical, transferable and academic skills and these, alongside any experience you may have gained outside your degree, will widen your career options.
