The Artists' Film, Video & Photography specialism has been developed directly from the well-established MA Artists' Film, Video & Photography course at UCA Maidstone. As with its predecessor, the specialist area draws on a strong tradition of film, video and photography at the University. Retaining the ethos of its origins in fine art and experimental cinema, you work in both analogue and digital media in the development of your practice.
Working directly with specialist staff, you develop projects that demonstrate a strong investigatory relationship to the contemporary employment of these media and forms within current fine art and film practice.
The specialism is aimed at innovative practitioners from a broad range of backgrounds and offers a unique environment where the boundaries between the artistic disciplines of video, film, animation, sound and photography can be dissolved in favour of inventive alliances that interface between site, screen and time-based work.
With a well-established and strong history, the Master in Fine Art course is open to artists, designers, illustrators, architects and theorists (including graduates in the humanities) and is designed to foster new and innovative approaches to fine art study at an advanced level. Building upon the practical and conceptual concerns of contemporary art practice, you develop an advanced ability to conceptualise and research in relation to your own practice.
This course is supported by seminars, tutorials, workshops, work in progress sessions, study visits and critiques. The progressive move from staff-directed to autonomous learning is an integral part of the structure of this course, as you identify, develop and manage your own MA project.
A range of assessment methods are used, including reviews of coursework, presentations and written submissions. Peer and self-assessment are also used at appropriate points to enable more self-critical perspectives in thinking about your work and practice.
You have the opportunity to produce a body of work which investigates the relationship of these specialist media forms within current art practice, building upon a strong tradition of film, video and photography at the University.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
If your first language is not English a certificate.
Your portfolio should reflect a strong commitment to the area for which you are applying and demonstrate a clear capacity to work at postgraduate level.
