If you have already made the decision that this is the right subject for you to study at degree level then you're right to apply direct to the Fine Art Year 0 course. The University of Cumbria is a smart choice of place for the study of Fine Art. Not only does it help you develop an awareness of yourself and your place in contemporary society and the world, it equips and empowers you to articulate imaginative responses in the media of your choice. The course is based at our Caldewgate campus.
This interdisciplinary course involves 4 studio projects and 1 theory project; from an early stage students have hands-on experience in all the major disciplines, responding to negotiated projects straight after the initial drawing module; they carry a set of related ideas through different media to experience and explore the particular characteristics of each method and to observe their effect on their ideas; the last 2 modules are designed to raise studentsâ?? awareness of the part an audience has to, or might, play in studentsâ?? work; in the final project students are asked to make a proposal, in exhibition form, for a site-specific work where the context (for example, geographical, environmental, sociological, historical, virtual, ideological) drives the development and outcome; the written and presentational, critical and contextual elements introduce students to a wide range of current art practice, referring them to precedents or influences from the 20th-Century and earlier; students develop an awareness of issues and methodologies in contemporary fine art and of their position and potential within it.
The University of Cumbria has multiple campuses - from Carlisle to London! - each offering a unique learning experience which enables students to have that small campus feel but be part of a bigger university community. With strong focus on vocational learning, it is 2nd in the UK for graduate employability with 97% in employment or further study within six months.
