The power of photography - seen everywhere, used by everyone - is sometimes easy to forget. However, it would be hard to imagine a world without photography and we look forward to sharing that world with you.
On this course students are recruited into one of three specialist departments (Photography, Painting and Printmaking, Sculpture and Environmental Art).
The Fine Art programme employs a variety of learning and teaching methods which may alter and adapt according to the perceived needs of students. The main methods of programme delivery are lectures, seminars, artists' presentations and group discussions, tutorials, progress reviews. projects, group crits, workshops, students' exhibitions, field trips, independent study, and formative and summative assessments. In addition to this, the School provides students with opportunities to take part in placements and exchanges in one of our partner institutions across the world in year 3. All students undertake a programme of study in the Forum for Critical Inquiry.
