Our Fine Art BA course allows you to experiment and explore your creative potential, preparing you for a career in the visual arts or creative industries. Students work with a range of traditional and new technologies, developing their ideas through sculpture, painting, printmaking, installation, film / photography, performance and sound. The course was ranked at number 6 in the UK (out of 66) for Art in the Guardian University League Tables 2018; a rise of 23 places from our 2017 ranking. A key part of the course are professional skills modules, which will help you acquire strategic skills for planning, showing, recording and communicating your work. You'll get to hear from visiting artists and take part in live external projects. Our industry links include the Tate, Stanley Picker Gallery, the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA), Drawing Room and Auto Italia. You'll be taught by practising artists, writers and curators in purpose built workshops and you'll have the option to go on field trips and study abroad. By the time you graduate you'll have gained real-life experience and skills and completed a portfolio that will help kick-start your career.
