Program Description

The Course

This interdisciplinary programme encourages creative risk-taking and intellectual inquiry. Alongside a strong emphasis on the richness and breadth of art practices around the world, staff and students on the programme are encouraged to take an active role in Lincoln’s contemporary art community.

You will have access to individual studio space while benefiting from opportunities to collaborate with national and international artists, curators and designers working in a variety of media. There is an active visiting artist programme of talks and tutorials, which has previously included Ben Woodeson, Tim Knowles, Yelena Popova and Amanda Coogan. Medium-specific specialist themes are available, recognizing the increased material focus of advanced practice in fine art.

How You Study

MA Fine Art is based in a dedicated studio and the production of work through studio practice is central to the programme.

The structure of the course is designed to be supportive but geared towards independent research and practice. Teaching occurs through tutorials, critiques, seminars, lectures, visiting artists and curators, study visits and, importantly, through the sharing of research and ideas among the peer group.

Full-time students will be taught on Tuesdays and Wednesdays (full day), as well as occasionally on other days. We expect all of our full-time students to work independently in addition to taught hours, to make up the full 5 days.

Part-time students will be taught on Tuesdays (full days) and some Wednesdays. Part-time students will be given a timetable upon enrolment in September for the whole academic year which will confirm which Wednesdays they will be in attendance. As a part-time student, there is an expectation of 2.5 days committed to studies which include the teaching time.

How You Are Assessed

Students are assessed in a variety of ways, through spoken presentations, written submission and importantly the presentation of critically grounded artwork.

The University of Lincoln's policy on assessment feedback aims to ensure that academics will return in-course assessments to you promptly – usually within 15 working days after the submission date.

Entry Requirements

First or upper second class honours degree in a relevant subject or equivalent professional experience.

International Students will require the English Language at IELTS 6.5 with no less than 6.0 in each element, or equivalent.
