Course content

In a reflective and challenging environment, our postgraduate Fine Art course has a cross-disciplinary structure which encourages you to engage with what it means to practise as an artist today.

You’ll work closely with local and national galleries and public arts organisations, including Turner Contemporary, Whitstable Biennale, Strange Cargo and the Folkestone Triennial – and you’ll be actively supported to develop and show work outside the context of the University, expanding your work’s audiences.

Guest lectures, artist masterclasses and professional practice seminars will help you develop your personal network and enhance the criticality and articulation of your practice.

Our course is open to artists, designers, illustrators, architects and theorists – including graduates in the humanities – and is designed to inspire new and innovative approaches to fine art study at an advanced level.

It’s supported by seminars, tutorials, workshops, work-in-progress sessions, study visits and critiques. By the end of the course you’ll be working autonomously, instead of staff-led, as you identify, develop and manage your own Masters project across different social, cultural, artistic and intellectual contexts.

Our course is helmed by a team of esteemed tutors, who each continue to enjoy great success in their respective fields. Guiding you on your studies will be Steffi Klenz, an internationally-recognised photographic artist, Edward Chell, a mixed media artist who specialises in painting and Professor Andrew Kotting, who is an award-winning short film and documentary maker.

We take great pride in ensuring you have a fulfilling, engaging and inspirational experience.
