““I’ve been at the Academy for just over two years now. I began with the Certificate, then the Fine Art Foundation, and am currently about to wrap up the first year of the full-time fine art programme. I feel very fortunate that the first course I did was Materials & Mark Making taught by Alison Hand. The idea of ‘making marks’ as art was new to me but resonated deeply, and the whole course redefined my concept of drawing.”

Our BA is designed for those aiming to establish an artistic practice. It gives you the freedom to pursue your own interests and aptitudes through a bespoke programme of study. There are three stages to our BA, which you can choose to study full-time (over three years) or part-time (over six years).
As well as helping you develop the in-depth technical skills needed to take your art practice forward, you’ll be encouraged to think critically about the wider theoretical and historical contexts of your discipline(s), and apply that knowledge to your practical work. By the time you graduate, you’ll have the confidence and ability to exhibit your work, take on commissions, apply for further study and find work in the creative industries.
