Course content

The MFA is a new, two year programme of full-time study designed to equip students with the advanced skills and understanding needed for the development of a critically informed, professional fine art practice. Through an 18 month programme that is studio-led and critically underpinned, the course will provide the resources and learning contexts necessary for students to assess and evaluate key discourses in contemporary art. The core teaching team will encourage and facilitate the development of students' potential as professional artists by offering expert guidance on the research, production, studio analysis and public presentation of each individual's work.
