BA (Hons) Fine Art

The BA (Hons) Fine Art is suitable for those interested in developing their practice as an artist. It will introduce you to a multitude of approaches to making art and help you develop your existing skills.

Through independent practice and taught workshops in generous studio spaces, you will be guided in the development of your technical skills as well as gaining philosophical and academic understandings of the subject.

The staff team are experienced practitioners or researchers in the field, who work closely with you to develop studio skills, hone your critical eye, and increase contextual awareness. You will explore models of practice in contemporary art, from studio and gallery-based work to site-responsive and client-led projects, using a variety of disciplines and media whilst working towards your specialism.

Professional practice modules will help prepare you for life

beyond art school and your place in the artistic community.

Our graduates follow a wide range of paths, progressing into postgraduate study, self-employment as creative practitioners, and into teaching or into a large range of employment offers within the cultural industries. The skills acquired by a Fine Art graduate include inventiveness, problem solving, autonomous working and communication, to name but a few. These are highly regarded and transferrable to many careers.
