Graduates of the BA Fine Art Photography (Hons) at the University of the Arts London (UAL) have the opportunity and are supported in exhibiting their work in external venues in London. During the second year all our students can take part in a wide variety of seminars and workshops hosted by a variety of external arts organisations.
Students will have the opportunity to take part in UAL's Erasmus and international exchange programme. Recent BA Fine Art students have spent part of their study with partner institutions in Leipzig, Madrid, Marseille, Milan, New York and Tokyo.
In the third year all students, can if they wish, undertake a work placement, instead of a written dissertation or practical live project. Students have worked alongside well-established artists, such as Richard Wentworth or David Batchelor. Others have worked within educational or curatorial institutions, such as Tate, Chisenhale Gallery, or within a specialist area such as a foundry or paint manufacturer.
