Course summary

Overview

Prepare for a career as a professional artist. Independently develop your practical work, research skills and critical thinking, with support from our experienced staff and visiting artists. Test out your ideas in a professional environment and gain invaluable experience of exhibiting, curation and collaboration.

Our Master’s course will allow you to investigate a range of approaches used in fine art, from painting, sculpture, and printmaking, to more contemporary media such as photography, video, digital media, installation, sound and performance.

You will spend much of your time working and researching independently - but you will also learn about recent theories, contexts and practices in lectures, seminars and one-to-one tutorials.

We will give you the chance to test out your ideas in a professional environment, and to pick up important transferable skills for your career through group and individual presentations and critiques, exhibiting, curation and critical writing.

Assessment

On most of our core modules, you will demonstrate your progress through visual research outcomes supported by a written evaluative statement, except for the master’s Dissertation where you will submit a 6,000-word contextual essay.

Careers

As well as preparing you for work as a practising artist, you will pick up skills and knowledge that will equip you for other roles. Our past students now enjoy careers in further and higher education, museum and gallery management, public arts projects, artist in residence schemes and fellowships opportunities, both in the UK and abroad. You will also acheive Intermediate awards: PG Cert, PG Dip.
