The Slade School of Fine Art is currently welcoming MA/MFA applications for 2013 entry.

An art school with an international outlook, part of UCL, London’s global university, the Slade offers a supportive, stimulating and creative environment in which to develop your practice. We welcome applications from students with a wide range of backgrounds, here in the UK and internationally.

About the program
We offer two Masters degrees in Fine Art. The MA is a two calendar-year (24-month) studio-based program with a history and theory of art component. The MFA is a two academic-year (18-month) studio-based program including a Critical Studies component.

Our programmes aim to provide an intellectual and creative environment in which you can further develop your individual potential as professional artists, and conduct independent research in your chosen studio areas. The practice of contemporary art and the history and theories that inform it are approached in an experimental, research-oriented and imaginative way. The main difference between the MFA and the MA lies in the distinction between the Critical Studies in the MFA and the history and theory of art in the MA.  Students on the MFA and MA follow the same studio course and are based in one studio discipline: painting, sculpture or fine art media (which includes electronic media, photography, print, film and video). Both programmes are research-centred. The first year incorporates a taught programme (delivered through lectures, seminars, tutorials and workshops) to upgrade theoretical and technical skills, but primarily demands a considerable degree of investigation and experimentation. The second year prioritizes individual research (conducted under supervision), building on and consolidating the learning and experimentation of the first year, leading to original results by graduate students capable of organising and implementing an independent programme at this level.

The Slade has a lively and dynamic studio-led research culture.  All studio staff are practising artists with significant exhibition profiles, actively involved in research as well as teaching. An art school with a world leading reputation, the Slade makes a significant contribution to the field of contemporary art both nationally and internationally.
