Program Description

Master of Fine Arts (Creative Practice)

Victoria University of Wellington

Overview

Hone your collaborative, creative and business skills as a practicing artist over an intensive 12-month programme. Victoria’s Master of Fine Arts (Creative Practice) is an industry-focused, practical degree that will help you build new contacts and networks in Wellington’s creative industries.

You'll take advantage of our capital city location and study at Victoria’s Kelburn campus—plus our film and music programmes get to use a new purpose-refitted facility at the Miramar Creative Centre.

Practice opportunities

The MFA (CP) includes a creative project in which you'll be mentored to complete work that showcases your abilities and encourages you to push boundaries in your field.

As part of the programme, you'll also do an internship with an arts organization. This will give you valuable work experience and provide you with all-important connections in your industry.

Broad approach

While your studies will be centered around your specialty area of design, film, music or theatre, you'll have opportunities to take an interdisciplinary approach to your work. If you're a Design, Music or Theatre student, you may also be able to take a complementary course from another fine arts discipline.

And, because all artists need some business knowledge, you'll complete a course in arts management and marketing as part of the programme.

Creative capital

Be part of Wellington's thriving and internationally recognized creative scene. During your studies, you'll have opportunities to collaborate with your artistic peers and many of New Zealand's top art professionals.

Community

Become part of a community of talented and like-minded students from across all of the fine arts disciplines. You'll work closely with other postgraduate students in the programme to share ideas and inspiration.

Workload

Full-time students can expect a workload of 40–45 hours a week for much of the year.

Scholarships

When you apply for the programme, you'll automatically be considered for an MFA (CP) scholarship which partially covers your tuition fees.

You may be eligible for other scholarships and can look for these based on your level of study, subject area, and background.
