The Fine Art programme at the University for the Creative Arts will initiate real-time opportunities, exploring how art is disseminated through live projects, exhibitions, curatorial exercises and work experience. In addition to developing your fine art practice, you’ll gain valuable insight and transferable skills in leadership and project management. 

Within dedicated studios and workshops focusing on material craft skills, digital and advanced specialist methods of working, you’ll discover how artists sustain a profile, become employable and promote themselves in the wider world.  

From traditional crafts to technological artworks, you’ll have the freedom to develop your own artistic voice, informed by a dynamic programme of study. 

We passionately believe in developing ambitious and resilient artists – we’ll help you to secure rewarding work placements, as well as promote your work to give you real-world experience. 

With access to leading artists, academics and facilities, our BA (Hons) Fine Art course in Farnham offers you an eclectic environment where you can explore diverse creative avenues. 


You’ll receive regular tutorials and lectures from internationally recognised artists and curators – recent visitors have included Gavin Turk, Phyllida Barlow, Gustav Metzger, Richard Wentworth and Turner Prize winner Martin Creed.  

From the start, you’ll have the opportunity to create live project exhibitions in London and the South East in order to locate new networks and audiences for your work. As a long-established and well-connected course, Fine Art at our Farnham campus has strong industry links including The Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA), Jerwood Space, The Henry Moore Institute, Watts Gallery, Cobham, TATE Galleries, and Blyth Gallery Imperial College.
