Master of Fine Art (MFA) — Overview
Our Master of Fine Art (MFA) programme gives you the opportunity to enhance your creative profile by executing an ambitious, time-limited project that results in a significant body of creative work.
The MFA is suitable for artists, designers and creative practitioners with a well-developed practice, who have usually completed an MA, and wish to refine and consolidate a professional body of work suitable for public dissemination.
As an MFA student, you will develop a robust research proposal into a substantial and resolved creative outcome that will be exhibited and assessed in a public venue. With the support of staff who are specialists in your area, and with access to regular group critique and lectures, you will hone your sense of your audience and disseminate your work in an appropriate form.
The course lasts one academic year full-time, or two years part-time, and culminates in an exhibition of creative outcomes. The models of delivery and support that will apply to your work are built around the negotiated proposal that you will provide on application, and that you will refine into a robust project plan during the first weeks of the course.
You will work with your tutors to fashion a programme that is tailored to the needs of your project. We offer a dynamic study environment, with access to workshop areas across the college.
