MA Fine Art gives you the opportunity to explore subject-specific areas, and our course also provides the intellectual and physical space for multi or interdisciplinary practices. Throughout this MA you'll develop visual and conceptual thinking, with the aim of establishing and refining a research project to be sustained beyond graduation, and developed into either a practice-based or theoretically-led enquiry. Whilst working towards your qualification, you might choose to specialise within or across subject areas. And our course welcomes applicants who are looking to re-examine their current work and research. Course overview: MA Fine Art aims to test the relationship between your work and key historical and critical developments. It also looks to consider it within current societal and political contexts. As a student on our course, you'll need to be ready to question, curious and enthusiastic about testing the boundaries of what constitutes art practice in the twenty-first century.

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. Throughout your studies, you'll be supported by professional artists, curators and theorists.
