This course allows you to develop your artistic practice whilst engaging professionally with the rich and vibrant arts community in Nottingham, which is recognised as having one of the most active artist-led scenes outside London. You will critically engage with, interrogate and resolve your own practice, as you develop an informed and established body of work.  

With an emphasis on professional practice and audience engagement, you will widen your network with partners across the city, including Nottingham Contemporary and New Art Exchange.

This will prepare you for the rigours of contemporary practice as both an artist and researcher. Successful completion of this course will give you grounding to progress to PhD study, or our Professional Doctorate course.

You may choose to study two year full-time, or three years part-time.
