Learn from dynamic high-profile international artists and thrive in our vibrant postgraduate community.
Our Department teaching team is made up of artists, curators and writers. Our research-led teaching offers you opportunities to engage with exhibition and curatorial initiatives, theoretical texts and publication projects. You will also benefit from the focused delivery of a guest artist who will work with you in the spring term and towards your graduate show in the summer term.
We are an active Department and we pride ourselves on the quality and vibrancy of our 24-hour studio community. Our programme of events, performances, screenings and shared discussions across all disciplines creates an inspiring and social environment. In addition to regular seminars, crits and tutorials that stimulate lively and rich discourse, our programme of visiting artist lectures and tutorials provides further support for your practice and intellectual journey.
As a student on one of our master’s programmes you will find yourself part of this stimulating postgraduate community and intellectual environment. You will work alongside our staff and PhD students, who pursue a wide range of research topics and practices. You will benefit from working closely with our PhD researchers through engagement with symposia and reading groups.
Our postgraduate environment extends out from the University through our external exhibitions and symposia and our partnership with the Tate through Tate Exchange, London. You can also participate in our Asia network with opportunities to exhibit in Japan, China and South Korea.
