Course summary

The aim of the programme is to provide a challenging and stimulating education through contemporary fine art practice. With a focus on ‘making’, the practical nature of this course enables you to establish an artistic identity and to situate your artistic practice within fine art and wider contexts and communities. We aim to equip you with a range of practical making skills underpinned by a theoretical awareness of visual culture, so you can analyse, and critically reflect upon, your visual outcomes. You’ll have designated studio space and access to a variety of well-equipped workshop facilities.Projects will include exciting directed briefs and self-initiated schemes of work, as well as collaboration with peers, galleries and other organisations. Understanding and engaging with professional fine art practice is central to this course. Therefore, visiting lecturers, visits to museums or residential opportunities in the UK and abroad form part of the wider education. Exhibiting your own work is also a priority. In addition to your End of Year Degree Show, you will have several opportunities to exhibit work throughout the course at our in-house gallery and at external venues.Students also fundraise to take their degree show on tour to industry at events such as Free Range in London, or in galleries in our regional creative hub of Bristol. Beyond graduation, we continue to invest in our graduates by including them in events, exhibition opportunities and offer residency placements.Career ProgressionEmployment opportunities for Fine Art graduates are many and varied, including creative arts practice, arts administration, teaching, curating, and arts therapy. Many of our students establish their own studios as artists or craftspeople, while others progress to postgraduate study in a related discipline including MA and PGCE programmes.
