Course Summary

Overview

Our Master of Fine Art (MFA) programme gives you the opportunity to enhance your creative profile by executing an ambitious, time-limited project that results in significant public exposure for your body of creative work.

The MFA is a platform for experienced creative practitioners who want access to a dynamic and supportive art school environment when bringing a project to fruition. It provides a framework within which to conceive, refine and consolidate an advanced body of work, which will be shared publicly.

As an MFA student, you will develop a robust research proposal into a substantial and resolved creative outcome that will be exhibited and assessed in a public venue. With the support of staff who are specialists in your area, and with access to regular group critique and lectures, you will hone your conception of audience and disseminate your work in an appropriate form.

The programme lasts one academic year full-time, or two years part-time, and culminates in an exhibition of creative outcomes.

The models of delivery and support that will apply to your work are built around the negotiated proposal that you will provide on application, and that you will refine into a robust project plan during the first weeks of the course. You will work with your tutors to fashion a programme that is tailored to the needs of your project.

We offer a high level of critical debate and industry-standard technical facilities, with access to workshop areas across the college.

Careers & Alumni

Alumni of our Graduate School pursue careers in the fields of fine art, craft and design, as practising artists, teachers, curators, and as gallery, theatre and technical professionals. Others go on to prepare for doctoral study, and set up viable projects as socially engaged and community-based practitioners.

Our programmes offer professional skills development to support our students as they progress within industry, self-employment (in the Creative Industries sector) and further Level 7 and 8 studies. The second module offers an opportunity to test out the practices being investigated by individual students within an appropriate, live setting.
