This degree aims to equip you with creative, interpretive, critical and analytical skills, so that you can participate in and contribute to the expanding field of contemporary art. You'll make and study contemporary art in a dynamic, critical and interdisciplinary environment. We'll equip you with the skills that will help you develop independent thought and confidence in your practice, as well as transferable skills suitable for employment in the creative industries. You'll have your own studio space from day one, and will have access to excellent facilities including specialist research laboratories. All staff on the programme are practising artists, curators and writers, here to respond to the work that you make and to help you understand how it contributes to, and challenges, the critical debates that exist in the study area and beyond. Since 1990, former Goldsmiths students have been nominated for the Turner Prize more than 30 times, and have won the prize on seven occasions. Applications for deferred entry are not accepted for BA Fine Art.
