Course content

This course is built around your personal interests and aspirations. It allows you to push the boundaries of creativity, within a framework of academic rigour and contextual research. Given the strong practical element in the course, we invite applicants to share their portfolios and aspirations with us at interview stage. We are eager to explore how to develop each person’s individual interests and passions in Fine Art.

During the course we encourage you to develop your personal practice through research, critiques, analysis and questioning. We also tackle issues that face Fine Art professionals, from fundraising to self-presentation, as part of boosting your employability.

At Masters level, the specialisms of tutors are an important factor. Sunderland’s research expertise includes, painting, printmaking, studio-based drawing and collage, sculpture, collaborative practice, art in architecture, video and digital art.
