A visual culture strand provides a multidisciplinary context for your study across all our art programmes. This involves the imaginative research, analysis and communication of issues raised by the visual aspects of culture. You will engage in a critical and creative dialogue with the work of your peers and gain an understanding of the nature of today's diverse visual cultures.
During the Intermedia Art programme at The University of Edinburgh, you will study the artistic, intellectual, social and professional contexts that shape creative practice in visual arts and learn how to best communicate this in a range of written, oral, visual and practical forms.
Many graduates pursue careers as artists or enter other art-related professions and go on to undertake residencies and commissions in a global context. A high percentage of graduates establish themselves in workshops and studios. Many have achieved considerable success and built international reputations.
Our programmes provide a progressive education in contemporary art practice. Our students develop analytical and practical skills, the ability to work with others in an organised manner and the ability to think laterally. These attributes can be applied to a wide range of career possibilities.
Some students continue their studies at postgraduate level. Others have gone on to teach or to make an impact in the wider creative industries
