Britain has a worldwide reputation as a hothouse of inspiring and challenging modern art. Many of our graduates go on to play a part in this vibrant scene: as artists, as assistants to internationally renowned figures such as Damian Hirst, and as experts with major galleries.
The course takes a very open approach to discovering what it means to be an artist in the 21st century. Whether you prefer installations or oils, you’ll explore materials, media and processes in our superb NorthLight studios. Through debate, ideas and theory, you’ll shape your own take on art.
Work together to create something special
We encourage your ambitions through studio practice and professional development. You’ll learn to analyse your work and question your role as an artist and how your work is understood. You’ll develop your own creative problem-solving abilities and apply them in a variety of ways.
You’ll work alongside professional artists in galleries, museums, schools and community groups, and develop your awareness of the wider world through visits to leading galleries and projects. We even have our own gallery where major artists exhibit, and you’ll exhibit your own work at student shows in London.
