Today, commitment, passion, and curiosity come together in a respectful, tolerant and culturally diverse learning environment, where skilled professional staff with international practices guide and accompany students through their studies. Our intensive programmes prioritise experimentation and personal guidance, allowing students the freedom to shape their interests and personal ambitions. We seek to foster an environment of innovation and disciplinary focus while also supporting collaboration and critical reflection on the ever-changing roles of art and design in contemporary society.


BA Fine Arts

At the BA Fine Arts, we work towards an aesthetic of curious inquiry and experimentation, to enable students to prepare for a practice that is consciously responding to contemporary contexts. We want our students' art practices to arise from the discourses within their own communities and experience, in close dialogue with a wide range of other social groups. We aim for our students to gain an understanding of the unique possibilities of art within a wider society, open to all possible sources that inform art-making. We teach our students to embark on professional art-making as an ongoing, cyclical process of creation, reflection, exploration, discussion, and dissemination.
