MA Fine Art is an exciting and ambitious programme of study and one that will accelerate your practical, technical and conceptual understanding of your practice.
The University has a long and established reputation as one of the leading providers of Fine Art education in the UK. With a focus on the production and dissemination of contemporary fine art practice, our students have been selected for high profile exhibitions and prizes including Bloomberg New Contemporaries, MOSTYN Open, Aesthetica Art Prize, Signature Art Prize, Jerwood Drawing Prize, and the Deutsche Bank Awards for Creative Enterprise.
You will join a community of artists, researchers and visiting industry guests and be part of a stimulating and active research environment. You may elect to specialise in or combine areas including painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, spatial and time based practice. With access to outstanding workshops and project spaces, you will be supported to extend or challenge your existing knowledge and methodologies.
Strong links with regional and national galleries provide platforms for dialogue around contemporary practice, supported by visiting artists and the Fine Art Lecture Series. The annual Fine Art symposium Dialogues supports your professional understanding of contemporary Fine Art practice, while opportunities to collaborate with MA Curation students extend the possibilities for knowledge exchange and critical discourse.
East GalleryNUA provides a showcase for high quality public exhibitions that augment the MA Fine Art experience. In 2016, NUA is the lead partner and host of British Art Show 8.

“The really interesting thing about the MA is that it’s practice-led. Practice is absolutely your main focus and this exciting process is about shaping and reshaping what you do.”
