Course content

MA Fine Art at UWE Bristol is designed for individuals who wish to pursue their practice to a professional level and gain knowledge and insight into contemporary practice.

This course provides a structure to enable you to extend your practical, critical, contextual and theoretical knowledge of Fine Art and gain skills and experience in order to operate in a professional context beyond University.

There is no emphasis on a particular type of work. Students work in painting, installation, performance, sculpture, photography, moving image and drawing. This reflects contemporary practice and allows you to explore and experiment with a range of formats throughout your time here.

Teaching is based at City Campus at Spike Island, within this internationally renowned contemporary art venue on Bristol's harbourside and part of UWE Bristol's City Campus. Here you will benefit from a vibrant creative environment and a range of work and volunteering opportunities.

You will also have full access access to other City Campus sites and all that they have to offer.

A professional learning environment

You will study alongside a small yet diverse group of students providing support and sharing insights and perspectives.

Students highly value the teaching input and experience of research-active, practicing artists all of whom exhibit nationally and internationally.

Teaching is centred at Spike Island an international centre for the development of contemporary art and design - bringing further expertise, opportunities, access to public events and regular guest speakers.

City Campus at Bower Ashton offers you access to modern resources and workshops including sound, film, casting, photography, textiles and print. This will extend your knowledge of methods and techniques and support your creative development.
