If you have a fine art, architecture or design background and would like to develop your professional practice within the contemporary fine art realm, this dynamic, production-based course is ideal. It enables you to identify and locate spaces in which to make and 'test’ your work, through site-specific work, performance and sound installation, internet activity, print-based publication, and so on.
You can explore the relationship between art, architecture, design and space by working alongside professional fine artists, curators and writers. Project modules allow you to focus on an area of particular interest and gain valuable practical skills. These culminate with a major public exhibition/event and accompanying publication. You also have the chance to undertake site visits to supplement your learning, display work in the University's galleries and collaborate with external parties.
What will you study?
You will develop and apply critical frameworks, debate a range of theoretical, cultural and social issues, and consider a variety of approaches to communicating and publishing your own research. You will focus on individual and collaborative practices, new technology, exhibition production and design, and a theoretical and critical programme to challenge and contextualise individual research. In addition, you will become familiar with the processes necessary to initiate and realise projects, developing and presenting proposals and collaborative working structures.

What this course offers you
If you choose to study this course, here are some of the things you can expect from the course and how it will benefit you.
The Art & Space MA provides the opportunity to develop your professional practice within the public realm. As part of this, you have the opportunity to build and redefine work online. Visiting staff and seminar presentations provide a critical framework for discussing theoretical research. Project modules allow you to focus on an area of particular interest and gain valuable practical skills. These culminate with a major public exhibition/event and accompanying publication. You also have the chance to: undertake site visits to supplement your learning; display work in the University's galleries and other exhibition spaces; collaborate with external organisations and individuals within other specialist areas; and extend your professional practice experience through a placement and residency. Many members of staff are professional practitioners, which keeps your learning cutting edge (read more in the Research areas section). Alongside your academic studies, you develop workplace skills in: problem solving and organisation; data collation, review and synopsis; communication (oral, written and electronic); time management; computing; and co-operation and teamwork. We offer a part-time study option to help you fit your MA around other commitments.

"I truly recommend this course because of the amazing tutors and students. I feel more than lucky to have studied here over any of the London art schools. The school and tutors set us really exciting projects and everyone is always so enthusiastic. Each and every student comes from a different background, which this allows us to discuss a variety of subjects every day. The most fabulous part of the course were the tutors and staff!"
