This course is devised for creative practitioners, recent art graduates and professionals who wish to examine, strengthen and deepen their practice within their own context. If you are a fine artist, designer, performer, creative writer, or have an interest in developing your practice for the creative industries, this course is for you.
MA Creative Practice encourages you to pursue an individual creative research interest for the duration of your study, allowing you to examine and strengthen your own practice and place it at the centre of your studies in a transdisciplinary learning context.
You will be encouraged to maintain contact with other creative practitioners and develop freelance or other creative career paths within a portfolio career. This course will also support and prepare you to develop ideas for application to a practice-based PhD.
The aim is to encourage a deeper conceptual and practical understanding of process, method, technique, tools and materiality through scholarship and critical engagement with theoretical creative practice contexts.
Our postgraduate courses are transdisciplinary and underpinned by independent learning. You will be supported with a variety of teaching and learning methods, including individual supervision, group tutorials, live briefs and project proposals, as well as being encouraged to collaborate with students from other postgraduate courses.
Our academic staff are engaged in contemporary practice in their specialism and will support, encourage and challenge you during your studies. You will be taught in a vibrant and bespoke postgraduate suite. All postgraduate students are taught together in research methods and business-related modules.
Postgraduate courses can be studied either full-time over 36 weeks or part-time over 72 weeks. Teaching is broken down into three teaching blocks per year, each comprising 12 weeks.
Students are able to access a range of specialist facilities aligned to their research interest.
Students are able to access a range of specialist facilities by arrangement. These include: practical workshops in printmaking, digital print, ceramics and glass, wood, metals and plastics, mac suites, 3D printers and photographic lighting studios.
