On the BA Fine Art we offer a creative environment with individual studio spaces, impressive facilities and the teaching support required to realise your potential as an artist. The aim of the Fine Art Programme is to create independent artist practitioners who are equipped to follow a vocation in the visual arts and related professions. Through structured workshops, students are given a solid grounding in the core fine art media of drawing, painting, sculpture, print making, video, photography, performance/installation and digital media. The programme is structured to enable students to develop a range of creative and intellectual skills including: working towards public exhibitions, working in collaboration, professional presentations, critical analysis and a holistic understanding of contemporary visual culture. The Fine Art programme is taught by practising artists and theoreticians with international reputations. All Fine Art students undertake work experience through a placement either in London or the region. All students have the opportunity and support to exhibit regionally and in London. The BA Fine Art has an international profile with British, European and international students electing to study on our programme each year. We have strong links with art schools across the globe including Europe, Russia, Canada, Australia and the Americas, and second year students have the option of spending a semester studying overseas. In addition to this, the programme organises a short, annual study trip to Europe.
