The MFA in Fine Art at Goldsmiths is currently welcoming applications for entry in 2018.

Our programme is directed to enabling emerging artists to become independent, articulate, confident and self-motivated in your practice and thinking. Our student-centred approach to teaching gives artists the tools to acquire a thorough critical understanding of the creation and reception of contemporary art today.

Our ethos is interdisciplinary—and challenging. Artists working together across media and interests, the integration of theory and practice, and engagement in peer-to-peer learning with a strong emphasis on full and open discussion—all will enable you to develop your range of abilities to the fullest.

We offer a supportive, highly engaged environment for study and artistic development at the heart of London’s art world. The MFA Fine Art inhabits a dedicated spacious studio complex in Deptford, one of London’s most vibrant and interesting areas for emerging art, music and design. The studios are a short walk from the Goldsmiths campus at New Cross.

The Department has a full complement of state of the art workshops and laboratories staffed by fully qualified technicians. All MFA students have full access to the labs and workshops. We also provide projects spaces and encourage you to develop your own exhibitions and projects both in the College and outside of it.

Our curriculum is built primarily around one-to-one tutorials and seminars with permanent staff and also visiting artists, writers and thinkers chosen by the students themselves. In recent years, visiting tutors have included Ed Atkins, Hannah Black, Nicolas Bourriaud, Simon Fujiwara, Anthea Hamilton, Mark Leckey, Renzo Martens, Sally O’Reilly, Katrina Palmer, Laure Prouvost, Daniel Sinsel, Dmitry Vilensky/Chto Delat, Guo Xiaolu, and Bedwyr Williams amongst many others. 

Permanent staff include John Chilver, Nick Crowe, Ros Gray, Andy Harper, David Mabb, Suhail Malik, Simon Martin, Sadie Murdoch, Michael Newman, Lindsay Seers, Ben Seymour, Kate Smith, Jemima Stehli and Milly Thompson. 

Engagement with contemporary theory is facilitated though tutorials, lectures, seminars, workshops and reading groups.

Documentation of our final exhibitions can be seen here, and the programme’s lecture series from recent years are here. Visit our facebook page here.
