Course content

This programme encourages you to develop ambitious, innovative and personal work. The interdisciplinary nature of contemporary practice is reflected in the way elements of professional practice are thoroughly integrated into studio practice. Studio development is underpinned by seminars, presentations and lectures that introduce the central concepts of the theoretical debate taking place around contemporary fine art practice. Throughout the programme you will organise and curate group shows.

Programme structure
The MA comprises modules in:
Personal and Professional Practice
Creative Practice/Critical Concepts
Independent Projects and Exhibition

Full and part-time pathways are integrated, with full-time students taught on two days a week and part-time on one. Full-time students typically study for one year, part-time for two. Students follow two core modules of 60 credits, followed by the final 60 credit module, "Independent study/ exhibition", culminating in the degree show in September.

Part-time students study one double-module in year one (Sept-June) and two double modules in year two (September-September).

Fulltime students study three double modules, two from September-June, and one in the summer period.
