Kingston School of Art invites applications for admission to its Fine Art MFA starting in September 2023. The course is a full time, two-year, studio-based programme.

The MFA in Fine Art at Kingston School of Art offers a unique blend of studio and theoretical training. While on the programme, you will develop your practice as an artist while critically reflecting on and locating that practice within a changing social, political and cultural context. You will have the opportunity to take one art theory module with the world-renowned Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy (CRMEP), and work across a range of media, taking advantage of the school’s cutting-edge workshops.

Through a student-centred approach to teaching and learning you will be encouraged to work on individual projects as well as experiment with collaborative modes of production and exhibition, developing relevant artistic and curatorial strategies both within the field of contemporary art and across broader cultural contexts. A programme of lectures, seminars and studio tutorials will connect you to a network of artists, curators, writers and gallerists as you explore what it means to make art in the 21st century.
