NUA postgraduates are a unique community of mature practitioners, experienced professionals and early academics who return to formal education for a variety of reasons.
The application requires you to exhibit intellectual and creative sensibilities that will sustain the practice-based research you will undertake during the course. It is also important that your interests are appropriately and sufficiently supported by the academic staff and facilities at NUA. We encourage you to read the relevant pages on our website and contact the University in advance of making an application if you have concerns about the suitability of the course to your interests.
Applications to all postgraduate courses should be made directly to the Norwich University of the Arts using an MA Application Form.
When you complete the application, please submit it via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to:
