Fine Art

Our Fine Art BA (Hons) degree is taught in the fine art department, which is the UK's top-ranked Art Department. The four-year undergraduate degree is studio-based and targets ambitious students who have a keen interest in visual art.

We admit 65 students annually, all of whom are allocated their own studio space. In the first year of study, we will encourage you to try a range of new working methods and urge you to develop ideas through experimentation, speculating and researching. 

The department is a good place to socialise, in the common room, the studios or excellent technology facilities and on sunny days, heading out to the beautiful quadrangle.

The School also offers a four-year BMus (Hons) degree with a year abroad, which includes a year of study in either Europe, Australia, North America or South America.
