Course content

Developing your art practice is the focus of the course, therefore our curriculum is carefully designed for you to do this by offering a range of activities that will help you to thoroughly understand how your materials and concepts work together.

The first year encourages you to broadly experiment with different approaches in a mixed discipline studio. In the second and third years, you select a specialist zone of practice to work in; painting, sculpture, or media and performance.
