Read about the Tate Exchange
A student studying abroad
Throughout her degree, she travelled to Taiwan and Wuhan, China, as part of a study exchange programme; subsequently she was awarded a scholarship to continue her studies in Taiwan after graduation.
"When I first started my course I only drew in pencil, but from the start we were pushed and encouraged to try different media. In the end I decided to explore video and my piece "Internal Landscape" uses 3D digital sculpture and a virtual reality headset.
"The study exchange programme allowed me not only to explore different countries, but also to get an understanding of how art is taught in different parts of the world."
Studying a joint honours degree
Many graduates opt to study art as part of a joint honours programme; they credit our diverse study programmes as key influencers over their art practice.
BA Art and Philosophy graduate Oleksandra Radchenko's piece '3-XI-6869421' is a coming together of her time in Reading School of Art and the department of Philosophy.
"Being able to collaborate with other departments became a really important part of my degree.
As a joint honours student studying Philosophy alongside Art, it helped me incorporate my philosophical outlooks and viewpoints within my art practice."
