Our course encourages you to develop your ambitious and innovative work within the supportive atmosphere of studio-based practice and under the close supervision of some of Britain’s leading artists.
We’ve been providing opportunities for ground-breaking talent since the Chapman brothers started making their dramatic impression back in the 1980s.
Now, Professor Grenville Davey, the 1992 Turner Prize winner who runs the course, believes it just keeps getting better.
The core elements of the course are designed to be challenging and enjoyable, to offer a rich, vibrant and varied experience in the fine arts.
There is a strong professional practice element so you will be encouraged to get involved in ‘real world’ projects – usually exhibitions, commissions, or residencies.
The course culminates in the degree show, which is a significant showcase for your work, attracting large numbers of visitors from the art world as well as the general public.

On our fast-paced course, your development as an artist in the studio will be underpinned by a programme called Critical Concepts. This is a series of seminars, presentations and lectures introducing, and centred upon, the theoretical debate around contemporary fine art practice.
You will organise and curate group shows, both as part of the curriculum but also beyond it amid east London’s thriving art scene. Previous exhibition venues have included the RK Burt Gallery, Parfitt Gallery, New Realms Gallery, Seven Seven Gallery and Star Gallery.
Through the Professional Practice element of the course, we will encourage you to develop a wide understanding of the relationship between studio practice and the life of a professional artist.
There will even be opportunities for you to enjoy work experience. For instance, some of our students have worked with Professor Davey on his art projects in the past.
Though there are two written elements over the duration of the course, your final key piece of work will be assessed through an exhibition of your art. It will stand as your major showcase.
