Course content

This programme is for artists who want to develop their specialist studio practice to a higher level.

It builds upon the distinctive approach to arts practice currently offered on the undergraduate fine art programme at the University. The course combines the use of established media and techniques with an ethos of open learning and experimentation using new and alternative media.

You will enhance your practice through a critical and contextual understanding of your creative methods, enabling you to develop and broaden your work in the formulation and articulation of your ideas.

Through contacts with external partners and arts-based agencies you will engage directly with the world of contemporary fine art, extending your knowledge of the commercial side of the art world. This aspect of your practice will also be supported by learning business management skills such as creating a business plan and writing proposal briefs for commission, exhibition and project work.
