First year studies include options in painting, sculpture, printmaking, video, photography, digital media, drawing and contextual and professional studies.
The second year develops individual studio practice in one or more of these areas. The course allows you to tackle a range of approaches to Fine Art via projects, workshops and self directed study.
In the final year you will negotiate and develop your individual creative practice, culminating in an exhibition.
Employability and professional practice are a component of the course throughout all three years. A professional project forms part of the final year and typically might involve an exhibition or placement. It is possible to study abroad in Europe during part of the second year. Exchanges in Europe are organised through the Erasmus programme with universities in France, Holland, Belgium and Spain. Also, a short study visit to a major European or US city normally forms part of the second year.
