Course description
The MFA Fine Art at Wimbledon will support you in claiming your art practice through sustained practical experimentation and contextual research. The Extended Full Time (EFT) mode is midway between full and part time study, and is designed to replicate the ways that many artists balance their Fine Art practices with their life and work commitments.
The course is divided into three units. It is delivered more intensively during the first year primarily in the college studios. During the latter part of the second year, some of your time will be spent outside college developing your art work in a context and working environment appropriate to your specific art practice. This allows you to practically test the developments in your art practice whilst being supported by a taught programme.
You will be taught over 2–3 days per week – depending on the stage in the course – and you will have access to the MFA Fine Art studios on these days. The remainder of the week you will be able to conduct research in London (and beyond); do volunteer work to gain experience, or do paid work/continue an existing job.
You have access to College workshops 5 days per weeks and the University’s libraries 6 days per week.
The two year duration – 2x 30 weeks – gives time for a sustained enquiry into your art practice. By having a high level of awareness about how your work operates within the contemporary artworld you will be able to ‘claim your practice’ by knowing the territory that your work occupies. Your professional skills will be honed through our Professional Toolkit, and the curriculum is based on the recent Arts Council England’s recommendations for the skillssets
required by both artists and arts organisations in order
for them to flourish.
You will create a web folio instead of a formal academic written paper, which contextualises and showcases your artwork. You will learn how to set up websites and how to use your online presence to profile your work effectively.

Postgraduate Instalment Payment Plan

It is now possible to pay course tuition fees in instalments for all postgraduate courses that last longer than 30 weeks . Payments are taken in three instalments on the following dates:

o 50% of course fee at or before enrolment

o 30% of course fee on the 6th January 2015

o 20% of course fee on the 22nd April 2015

From August you will be able to set up a payment plan through the fee payment gateway which will automatically debit funds from your account on the instalment dates. You will be sent an email confirming the payment plan and a receipt for the payment you have made.

If you are an international student the terms of your visa will apply, and you should ensure that you have met the financial conditions of your visa. It should be noted that the UKBA require students to prove that they have the funds to pay the full tuition fees for the year and have held the funds for at least the previous 28 days at the point they apply for the visa.

Remaining up to date with payments and clear of debts to the University is a necessary part of your enrolment. If you are a new student starting in the autumn and withdraw from your course after three weeks from the date of your enrolment you will remain liable for the full fee.
