This MFA, described as one of the most influential MFA programmes in the world, subjects art-making to critical scrutiny. Artists on the programme strengthen the motivation, self-reflection and ambition of their practice and its leading ideas. The primary aim of this MFA is on how artists look to shift prevalent expectations and whether their work does so – perhaps then transforming what art might be. The Year 1 of this programme is the Diploma stage. This stage can be taken either full-time for one year (until late July) or part-time for two years (until late July in both years). The aim of this Diploma stage is to establish the core concerns and ambitions of each student's art. The Year 2 is the MFA stage and can be taken either full-time for one year (until late August) or part-time for two years (until late July, and then until late August in the final year).
