Course summary

Our Fine Art degree is a practice-based course in contemporary visual art for ambitious, motivated and imaginative artists.

Course overview

This unique four-year fine art degree focuses on developing your professional, practical and theoretical skills alongside your own exciting body of work. You'll graduate ready for a career in the field or progression to postgraduate study.

You will have space and time to experiment and develop your ambitious ideas in the studio, as well as forming a deeper understanding of art history and contemporary art through taught modules.

Throughout your degree, you can choose from more than 20 specialist workshops, such as ceramics, photography, 16mm film, oil painting, performance and experimental printmaking.

You'll become a confident fine art professional, with the skills and knowledge of what it takes to thrive in the contemporary art world through live projects, placement opportunities, exhibitions and your final-year degree show. Your degree show gives you the chance to display your work to hundreds of visitors.

Teaching methods

Teaching is focused around you and your practice, and is driven by making in the studios and workshops. You will develop an increasingly self-directed studio practice across the four years.

This will be supported and developed through regular one-to-one tutorials with your studio tutor, group crits, taught workshops and strands introducing you to new working methods.

You will also benefit from visiting artists, critics and curators who contribute to tutorials and workshops, alongside Newcastle University staff.

  • setting up and running art galleries
