Months of entry
Postgraduate studies in Fine Art at Kent offer you an energetic, challenging and open framework in which to explore your artistic practice.
The programme welcomes independent thinkers who seek to develop their practice in a discursive environment that brings together a diverse set of attitudes to making and producing art work in contemporary culture. As a student, you are encouraged to realise your creative and intellectual potential within your discipline informed by specialists within your field.
The MA Fine Art programme prepares you for a professional career in the arts and we offer new workshops and studio spaces with excellent technical support to realise your practice-based projects. New opportunities to work together on ambitious group projects in public are encouraged and supported by a staff team made up of practicing artists.
This programme develops your practice towards establishing a creative, critical and independent practice. You have your own studio space in which to explore and test your studio work, with full access to workshops and high-quality resources at our new multimillion-pound development on the Chatham Historic Dockyard, just 55 minutes from London.
The programme welcomes students who wish to pursue any form of artistic practice in an interdisciplinary studio-based research environment. A core series of critical studies lectures, seminars, tutorials and collaborative opportunities allow you to develop your awareness of key issues in contemporary culture. We also offer opportunities for working with museums and galleries outside of the University, developing your specialism towards the achievement of professional excellence within your field.
