Typical offer range for UK / EU applicants
We recommend that applicants undertake a pre-degree foundation diploma in Art and Design. However if applying with A-Levels only, a total of 260 points (with a grade B in an Art and Design related subject) is expected, supported by a high quality portfolio.
Applicants applying with a BTEC Extended Diploma are expected to achieve an overall Merit grade (Merit, Merit, Merit).
For all applicants an offer of a place will be made following a successful portfolio review and interview
Year 1 You will be encouraged to experiment in a number of disciplines, gaining extensive knowledge and skills as you progress. Specialist strands include: Ceramics and Sculpture, Drawing and Painting, Mixed Media Textiles, Printmaking, Photography and Moving Image. Contextual and theoretical components of the course are embedded into all practice-based modules and are supported by lectures and seminars introducing students to contemporary art practice.
Year 2 and 3 You will have the opportunity to specialise in one discipline area, or maintain a broader portfolio through to graduation, taught by expert staff from all aspects of the visual arts. Running in parallel to your study you will take advantage of professional development exercises such as web-design, marketing and project management, gaining the necessary expertise to maximise your potential after graduation. You will also have access to an extensive weekly programme of visiting lectures from practising artists, curators, critics and gallery owners.
Graduates of Contemporary Arts Practice will have a broad portfolio of expertise to accompany specialist knowledge in a particular field. The majority of our graduates progress to art-related employment or self-employment, whether as a studio-based artist, public artist or through employment in the realm of arts management or arts administration. The course also attracts many students wishing to pursue a career in teaching.
