MA Drawing at Wimbledon College of Arts is aimed at students who want to explore and interrogate the practice of drawing.
What students can expect from the course:
- A course that promotes drawing for a purpose, focusing on process and cross-disciplinary dialogues that centre on communicating ideas to an audience, client or user
- To develop their drawing, discursive skills and agendas through a re-orientation of their practice
- Collaborations across and between diverse disciplines and courses at the College
- To have access to rich research sources such as Wimbledon’s Jocelyn Herbert Archive, the Stanley Kubrick Archives and University of the Arts London Centre for Drawing
- To benefit from the College’s established relationships we have with Tate Britain, The British Museum, Ashmolean Museum, The Royal Academy, The Sir John Soane Museum and the V&A drawing collections
- To explore a range of practices and disciplines where new languages and methodologies can be developed, including: architecture,
art, cartography, dance, design, engineering, performance, the sciences and writing
This will comprise of input from a range of practitioners from diverse disciplines, encouraging discussion of drawings purpose, its currency and potential for communicating and problem solving. This may include input from scientists, architects, writers and performers exploring the boundaries of drawing.
This unit will focus on defining and developing themes from Unit One via individual or collaborative research questions. The unit will allow students to set up identifiable internal or external collaborations, and establish specific targets. The collaborative process can be used to resolve issues across and between disciplines.
Will allow students to further develop their individual research questions, and explore and define practical methodologies to articulate drawing for a purpose.
A central element of the course is the application and testing of communicative drawing, as well as drawing with identified purpose and intent. An intense and productive process of enquiry and investigation, focusing on the acquisition of fluency, clarity and coherence in expressing visual narrative, will form your core practice.
The techniques and technologies which form the practice-based mechanisms of illustration are also key, with the aim of achieving a dynamic, sophisticated and confident application of process. You will actively explore printmaking, digital painting, creative software and all forms of natural media. Drawing will also form a methodology for research and investigation, supported by lectures and workshops, and delivered by illustration staff who have a wide range of industry and publishing experience. You will be guided in intellectual and critical enquiry through practice, lectures and reflective study.
The programme encourages enterprise and promotion alongside personal development. You will have opportunities to print, publish and disseminate your work in collaborative and personal publications for our imprint, ‘The Pittville Press,’ which is actively promoted at book fairs and publishing events.

Graduate successes include
The MArch Master of Architecture at AUB explores the possibilities of architectural practices that conceive and articulate diverse processes of community development and transformation.
The MArch course is for you if you are looking for something different and fresh in your route to becoming an architect in a changing world.
Our course explores the possibilities of new architectural practices that make, innovate and collaborate, exploring diverse processes of community development and transformation.
MArch aims to produce: performative, projective enablers and architecture, cutting into societies deepest darkest myths; building interventions in the utopias and dystopias past, present and future; and launching architectural careers and journeys via its laboratory practice, where the body and somatic practice is at the fore.
The periphery is important geographically, as from there you can see the centre. Both the urban region, the rural and the coast has a a great surface for interventions. Join the eclectic global and local, MArch student body, be ready to catch a big one from the Piers and the Portland Stone cliffs or disappear into the New Forest (Mirkwood) to live like a hobbit.
The urban density of the AUB campus has seen the insertion of an amazing Drawing Studio by visiting professor, honorary fellow and alumni Professor Sir Peter Cook. The RIBA award winning building was opened by Zaha Hadid. Her practice is now closely involved with the development of Pavilion Gardens in Bournemouth, the MArch is shadowing this work.
At AUB, our studios work in a way that mirrors industry, with students working together in a high-energy environment. You’ll work in our recently renovated studios and have access to 3D workshops with manual and digital manufacturing equipment.
You’ll also be able to make use of our makers lab – a shared creative space also used by Modelmaking students – and designed to give the the space to create.
The AUB Workshop is situated on campus and can be accessed by any student. Onsite technicians are on hand to help students make use of the fantastic facilities such as:
You’ll also be welcome to use the printmaking room – located with the Fine Art studios. Where, the University has gained a number of traditional presses, including letter press, etching, relief, lithography and silk screen printing. There are dedicated areas for exposure, screen washing and acid etching – and new presses are added all the time.
Cities are core to human political, social, and economic life (Storber, 2013) and there is significant and growing academic debate and empirical research around the role and effect of city living. There are also significant questions raised in real world governance, planning and public policy around cities, both in the developed world (for instance, policy debate around the devolution agenda in the UK, specifically in terms of Greater Manchester) and in BRICS (for example, spatial planning issues for growing Chinese cities (reflected in the international conference being held this year in China urban development at the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL).
The programme aims to contribute to this debate, drawing our key research strengths, and maximising our position in Manchester and within the devolution agenda. The programme will be interdisciplinary, teaching will be research led (drawing on our best research areas), and will include practical and vocational opportunities through a proposed project-based element in partnership with Manchester City Council. The programme design recognises that international students, particular those with an interest in urban policy from BRIC countries, may need language and academic skills support before they join the main programme. It also provides data analysis modules, using real big data available to the university through the Big Data Centre.
Urban studies is a growing area for PGT programmes in the UK and the USA. Such programmes are either located in town planning (leading to professional certification, and not directly relevant to this proposal), or in the social sciences (geography, public policy/administration, sociology). A small number of these are interdisciplinary, though typically do not include architecture and social sciences as proposed here, positioning this course as one of the leading courses in its field. Additionally, the University of Mancheser has recently launched the Manchester Urban Institute, drawing together a number of research centres looking at the urban as a unit of analysis/focus of empirical research, and placing Manchester as a leading city in the area of Urban Studies. This does link to a number of existing PGT programmes, largely single disciplinary and/or in town planning/architecture.
This is an intensive, vocational course with strong professional links to the industry, offering a maximum of four students, with high levels of painting and drawing skills, the opportunity to develop their careers as scenic artists. The skills and techniques acquired on this course are to the level necessary for theatre, television, film and animation industries..
During the year students acquire an understanding of professional practice and standards, and gain in-depth skills and experience in scenic art techniques and their application, combined with the practice of managing a scenic art department.
The Course has 3 very intensive terms during which students paint the sets for the School’s six main house public productions, offering them the opportunity to see their finished work used on stage in a wide range of public performances and venues. Teaching is led by the School’s Head of Scenic Art in collaboration with visiting industry professionals who provide master-classes in a range of skills and techniques that include; life drawing, portraiture, perspective, marbling, wood-graining, polystyrene carving and painting for animation. The scenic art students work collaboratively with the School’s other production departments, and most especially with design students. Furthering their introduction to the industry, work placements with principal companies are arranged during the course; particular attention is placed on students developing their own professional portfolio. Upon graduation students will showcase their work in a public exhibition and be interviewed by some of the UK’s leading industry practitioners. In a freelance industry most of our graduates begin working as assistants for scenic artists, scenic workshops and large theatre companies, eventually becoming supervising scenic artists themselves.

Providing meaning to fundamental questions and ideas that feature in science, culture and faith.
The contemporary world is characterised by rapid innovations in science and technology. These developments contribute to economic growth and prosperity, but simultaneously require positioning, and specifically people who can provide meaning and direction. Theologians are those people, as they are trained in systematic reflection of fundamental questions and ideas that feature in science, culture and faith. They can contribute to the dialogue between believing and knowing.
Radboud University aims to train such theologians. The central focus in the three-year Master's programme in Theology is on the tension between universal truth claims within belief systems and the diverse cultural contexts in which they are expressed. We are concerned with how the Christian faith addresses matters in society at large and with the public relevance of Christian beliefs and doctrines. Christian engagement requires an intellectual as well as a practical basis. We therefore seek to provide academic rigor to the conception of theology. It's about contributing to the welfare of society by drawing on the insights, resources and compassionate values of the Christian faith.
Graduates of the Master’s programme in Theology are employed in various leadership positions in dioceses, religious congregations, universities and colleges. In a globalising world more and more institutions require skills in theological communication and hermeneutics.
Master’s students can choose to specialise in one of four disciplines of theology or to take a general theology programme in which all four disciplines are studied.
History of Church and Theology
Analysing historical developments of Christian traditions and discipline, to better understand Christian belief in contemporary society. (Church History, Historical Theology, Canon Law)
Words, texts and meaning: Investigating the Old Testament and the New Testament in their historical contexts.
Searching for traces of meaning in everyday practices, and looking beyond traditional shapes of religiosity. (Pastoral Theology, Missiology, Liturgical Studies, Intercultural Theology)
Drawing on the compassionate values and insights of the Christian faith to contribute to the welfare of society. (Fundamental Theology, Dogmatic Theology, Theological Ethics, Spirituality, Philosophy of Religion, Feminist Theology)
Graduates of the Master’s programme in Theology can specifically train to become researchers, policy makers, educators, pastoral care workers or spiritual counsellors. Other professions upon graduation include pastoral worker, journalist, curator and archivist.
See the website http://www.ru.nl/masters/theology
- Students can choose a broad programme or choose to specialise in one of the four disciplines of Theology (Literary, Systematic or Practical Theology or Church History).
- With electives, students have plenty of room to choose a direction that meets their professional and academic interests. Taking a few seminars from the other theology disciplines of choice (Church History, Literary Theology or Practical Theology) is mandatory to broaden students general knowledge on Theology.
- The third year is aimed at training students for a specific profession. Students can choose research (English), education (Dutch), religion and policy (Dutch) or spiritual care (Dutch).
- Theology at Radboud University is a truly international Master's programme; many of our staff, students and alumni come from outside the Netherlands. We also cooperate with universities abroad in Kenya, Tanzania, India and Indonesia.
- The majority (88%) of our students graduate. This is because our staff knows how to motivate through excellent education and intensive supervision. As a Master's student you will have a personal tutor and you will work in an inspiring environment with excellent researchers.
- Teaching takes place in a stimulating, collegial setting with small groups, allowing ample opportunity for questions and discussion.
- Radboud University and its Theology department are Roman Catholic in origin, but its Master’s programme in Theology is open to all students. Our students have very diverse religious and cultural backgrounds.
In a globalising world, more and more institutions require skills in theological communication and hermeneutics. Theologians know how to formulate critical theological perspectives on questions of meaning of life and a viable civil society in our contemporary situation. Our graduates have an analytical attitude and the skills to make sounds judgements which will help them participate in debates in the public arena using arguments based on the Christian faith and can convey their faith in society. In addition, the programme teaches you how to think independently and critically about the way the Christian doctrine can give meaning to contemporary issues.
Among the Theology staff there is a large variety of expertise; research is being conducted in all four disciplines of Theology. Staff members apply their latest research and those of their colleagues to their seminars.
- Church History
The research group Church History and the History of Christianity studies the history of Christians on the basis of historical methods and in critical deliberation with the other disciplines within theology and religious studies. They are primarily concerned with the historical questions of discipline and repression.
- Literary Theology
The research group Textual Sources of Judaism and Christianity focuses on the foundational texts of Judaism and Christianity: the Bible and texts that originated in the Jewish and Christian traditions of the first centuries of our calendar.
- Practical Theology
The research of the chair Empirical and Practical Religious Studies is conducted along two lines. The first is the transformation of life stories, discourse and transmission of religious and spiritual identity. The second line investigates the transformation of religion in processes of migration and conflict. Migration results in interaction between individuals with different religious identities and spiritualities.
- Systematic Theology
The research group Systematic Religious Studies also carries out research in the theological field and is concerned with issues relating to public theology. Accordingly, the research covers questions as, for example, whether the public sphere can be a locus of theology or whether theology can seriously contribute to cultural, political, or economic debates.
