BA (Hons) coursesStudios and Resources

Course Overview

Due to the wide range of practices in contemporary art the course is broad-based in nature and operates a flexible studio policy, adapting to the changing character of each incoming cohort, resourcing the studios accordingly.

In addition, we offer a ‘setting up area’ to encourage students to build larger structures, work with clay and plaster, and stretch canvases in a dedicated environment.
