Program Description

Join a culturally rich and diverse creative community where learning and teaching extend from the studio to a professional network of leading art professionals and through participation in public exhibitions and events.

Your studies will be a combination of studio practices, theory, critical involvement with culture, society, and artistic practices. Benefit from the teachings of cutting-edge and multi-disciplinary artists, theorists and curators, including artist Keith Piper, (founder member of the ground breaking BLK Art Group, an association of black British art students), Alexandra Kokoli author of the Feminist Uncanny, artist Ergin Cavusoglu and others. Our outstanding facilities in The Grove, our specialist building for art, design, media and performing arts, are among the best in the country.

The following course-related costs are included in the fees:

- A free electronic textbook for every module
- All printing and copying required for your study.
- Self-service laptops available for loan for a maximum of 24 hours
- Audio-visual equipment available for loan, including digital stills cameras, digital video recorders, digital audio recorders.
- £50 credit to spend in the MDX materials shop in the Grove

The following course-related costs are not included in the fees, and you may be required to purchase these to complete the course. The costs are approximate and may change due to changes in pricing at the retailer:

- Any art materials (e.g. paints, paper, canvas, SD cards, USB sticks, photographic film, etc.) in addition to the credit that you receive to spend in the MDX materials shop. The cost of materials varies widely and depends wholly on your artistic choices; it is possible to spend next to nothing on the production of your work on BA Fine Art.
- Optional visits to ticketed exhibitions at museums and galleries, which can cost up to £15 each.
- No more than one optional field trip per year to a European destination, £200-£300
