Applications for entry in October 2016 are now closed. Our next admissions period is 1 October – 1 December 2016, for entry the following autumn. An updated prospectus and information about how to apply will be posted on the website in due course.
In an applicant we look first for evidence of a strong practice; second that the candidate is looking for evolution in their work and that their practice is not fixed; third that they have a desire and capacity to be critically engaged with their own work and that of others. We aim to put together a diverse group that represents the breadth of contemporary art practice.
In most cases our successful candidates have gained a BA (Hons) Degree in Fine Art or have equivalent experience. In recent years we have accepted a number of candidates straight from their BA but most of our successful candidates have been working as independent artists for a number of years. We do consider applications from those who have an MA, currently none of our students have this qualification.
Please note that we have now moved to a digital only admissions process.
