What will I learn?

The MA programme offers a rich variety of experiences and challenges, allowing for a great deal of differentiation to suit the diverse range of students. We have extensive experience of nurturing and developing students in Fine Art, whilst at the same time challenging and giving them confidence to work outside their comfort zones. An important priority is to develop student ambition and develop an understanding that they are competing in the sector nationally.

This will be a broad MA Fine Art course in which we will see students graduating in different specialisms for example painting, sculpture, installation, printmaking, video or performance.


Assignment submissions are divided across the academic year. However there are certain times of the year where students can expect ‘busy’ periods (e.g. end of semester).

Various assessment methods are used, dependent on the module. These include:

  • Portfolio
  • Blog Reviews
  • Viva
  • Dissertation/ Catalogue website
  • Presentation
  • Essay
  • Sketchbook
  • Final piece
  • Exhibition
  • Reflective statement
  • Dissertation proposal


Many skills gained from a Masters degree can be applied to lots of different jobs.

In 2017, the most common jobs held by recent Masters graduates were:

  • education professionals, such as secondary and higher education teachers
  • business, human resources (HR) and finance professionals, particularly management consultants and financial analysts
  • health professionals, such as nurses and social workers
  • managers.
