Course summary

Course overview:

As a student of our MA Fine Art course at Farnham, you’ll be ready to question, be critical, be curious and be enthusiastic about testing the boundaries of what constitutes art practice in the 21st Century.

Throughout this MA, you’ll critically evaluate your own work and the work of others and constantly develop your visual and conceptual thinking - all with the aim of establishing and refining a research project to be developed into either a practice-based or theoretically-led enquiry beyond graduation.

You’ll test the relationship between your work and key historical and critical developments, and consider it within current societal and political contexts. You’ll also have the opportunity, if you wish, to specialise within or across subject areas.

Our course also welcomes applicants who are looking to re-examine their current work and research.

MA Fine Art in Farnham is unique for its world-leading research and range of first-class facilities, including bronze foundry, printmaking studios, metals, wood and casting facilities and resources. We provide specialist studio spaces for both full and part-time students, and dedicated technical staff are on hand to support individual projects as well as introductions to workshop areas.

You’ll be guided by a community of teaching staff comprising professional artists, curators and theorists, who will also actively promote you and your work in the wider world.

The department has a rich tradition in the teaching and exploration of fine art. All of the staff are research practitioners and many are world-leading, contributing to the wider development of knowledge within their specialist areas.


Fine Art facilities include extensive studio spaces and access to workshops for painting, 2D and 3D laser cutting, sculpture, wood and plaster and mould-making. There are also print studios with relief and block printing, plate or stone lithography, intaglio, letterpress, photopolymer plate printing, and screen-printing. There’s also access to film and photography studios and performance workshops. Our modern library has a wealth of books, journals, special collections and online resources.
