Postgraduate Diploma in Fine Art

The Postgraduate Diploma in Fine Art offers a coherent, graduate study path for artists and teachers who have Fine Art degrees and wish to upgrade their academic status, or those who have not yet acquired degree status, but who hold recognised diplomas in aspects of the visual arts.

This programme develops practical skills and conceptual thinking in fine art practice. Students work within a studio of senior students and develop a practical proposal of choice. This culminates in a professional exhibition at the end of the year of study that demonstrates a sound understanding of contemporary practice.

The submission is accompanied by a visual catalogue with an introductory essay. A weekly reading group introduces core readings and critical issues.

Applicants must submit the following:

(a) A portfolio of recent work on CD in PDF format not exceeding 10MB file size;

(c) A statement of motivation that outlines a research project for the year (500 -1000 words).

a) Portfolio:

The portfolio must represent a recent body of work or a previous body of work that gives the higher degrees committee an indication of the direction you wish to pursue while registered. This work, including your name, title of each work and medium used, must be submitted in PDF format on a CD not exceeding 10MB file size. Please check that your CD is working and is formatted to be read on all computers (MAC and PC)
