Overview

The (Hons) Fine Art programme from Manchester Metropolitan University is taught by professional artists who are actively engaged in contemporary practice who will encourage the exploration of the broader social, political and community context to assist students to define a personal mode of study that will equip them to continue their development post-degree. 

The wide range of teaching approaches, facilities and opportunities will support students to acquire skills and varied methodologies that allow them to either specialise or engage with a pluralistic approach to exploring fine art.  The diversity of content creates a distinctive group of students that engage with and question a divergent range of approaches to studio practice and externally engaged projects.

Students also have the opportunity to develop their practice within an international context through the international exchange programme, national and international study trips and the acquisition of foreign language skills. There are opportunities to engage in the contemporary art world through study trips, exhibitions, student exchange programmes, visiting artists' lectures, specialist masterclasses and Whitworth Gallery talks.

Careers

Graduates have gone on to study MA's in fine art, curating and art history in Britain, Europe and the USA. They have also gone on to become artists, freelance curators, teachers, gallery assistants and technicians and teachers.
