I have a passion for painting and have been painting in my own time (and on my own) for the past 20 years. I was therefore keen to do a practice-based postgraduate fine art degree, and Bath Spa University was recommended to me. The School of Art and Design has a good reputation and it’s set in a great location in Bath. The studio space is also fantastic. I liked the rigorousness of the course and also the blend of workshops and one-to-one tuition. The staff of the course are very supportive and Dexter Dalwood’s seminar series is particularly memorable. Having this MA will allow me to apply for artists’ residencies, awards and competitions. It has set me on a path to confidently continue with my practice. If you are considering this course have a good idea what you want to achieve, and why. Also, it helps to have a good general knowledge of contemporary and historical artistic practice.
