BA (Hons) Fine Art is a multidisciplinary course which allows you to work with paint, print, sculpture and hybrid, drawing, video, sound, performance, text, curation and installation practice in either a focused or pluralistic way. You work from your own studio space where you can explore your practice and use the campus project spaces to exhibit your work, participate in group shows and hold meetings and events. You will have access to a broad range of workshops including 3D, print making, media suites and the drawing studio, all staffed with specialist technicians to support your practice.

Initiatives at galleries such as Wysing Arts Centre, Serpentine Galleries, Tate Modern and Camden Arts Centre provide opportunities to interact with the wider art world and you are challenged to consider wider realms of practice through lectures from practising artists such as 2013 Turner Prize winner Laure Prouvost, Cornelia Parker, Cécile B Evans, 2006 Turner Prize nominee Mark Titchner, Jack Strange and Jerwood Painting Fellows Susan Sluglett and Anthony Faroux. You will graduate with your final work shown in the NUA Degree Show, which attracts curators, collectors, critics and potential collaborators from across the UK.

“The course has enabled me to broaden my idea of what art is and what it can be in terms of its physical and non-physical form. In my first year I’ve gained a more defined perspective on the issues and concepts I want to explore in my own practice.”
