This M.F.A. is directed to support students to advance their practice and artistic agency through a rigorous approach towards how they will position themselves as artists. The programme is taught by active practitioners with national and international profiles and includes artists, curators, writers and theorists. For both student and educator this programme is dedicated to providing a catalyst by which they can pursue artistic interests. Our work is therefore, also informed by the research interests and specialism of our educators and the programme is preparatory for future third cycle study.

This M.F.A. programme is concerned by the possibilities of art for the twenty-first century and aims to support students to question, challenge and articulate the terms of engagement by which their artistic practice – and the art they make can contribute to, critique and challenge the contemporary world. We do not discriminate by media and seek students who want to develop their command of art-making with a commitment to investigating contemporary and historical, political and cultural conditions and contexts for their work, through combining research, idea, material, discussion, skill, observation, critical thought, action and reflection.
