Established in 1968, our MA Fine Art programme was the first master's of fine art in the UK. Delivered by international artists, the MA Fine Art focuses on exhibitions and professional practice.

MA Fine Art

For me, the most important part of the course is its international scope. There has been a whole range of opportunities where we have had the chance to go abroad and learn from other people. My course at Reading has not only taught me to be an aspiring artist, but also how to be a professional practitioner ready for the demands of the industry.
