About Fine Art, BA (Hons) - at University for the Creative Arts (UCA)

BA (Hons) Fine Art at our Canterbury campus is a self-directed degree course which will encourage you to experiment and develop an independent art practice informed by a theoretical and critical understanding of fine art.

Using our extensive facilities and dedicated studio spaces, you’ll have the chance to explore a range of media such as painting, sculpture, installation, photography, film, sound, performance, animation and printmaking.

Alongside these skills, you will also learn important business knowledge, self-promotion techniques and have many opportunities to network, giving you a strong foundation to build your career.

We’re passionate about equipping students with the confidence, motivation and ambition necessary to pursue your own artistic activities after you graduate.

On this Fine Arts course, you’ll be exposed to the breadth of contemporary art practice through regular gallery visits and a bespoke series of visiting artist lecturers.

Supported and guided by our team of experienced practicing artists, you’ll be encouraged to develop your own professional practice and experiment in a wide range of disciplines, seeking out a variety of opportunities for you to work, exhibit and develop your creative skills.

Exhibiting your work in both the national and local art scene with organisations such as the Whitstable Biennale, Turner Contemporary and artist run spaces like CRATE in Margate, you’ll gain practical experience of what it means to be a working artist.

As a long-established course, we have a strong national reputation which gives you access to some of the most respected names in the creative industries, including Tate Modern, the Saatchi Gallery, LUX, Canterbury Festival, and the Dover Arts Development.

Whilst many of our alumni establish careers as artists, others choose to apply their talents and transferable skills to other fields, becoming curators, writers, filmmakers, project managers, animators, photographers, arts administrators, publishers, educators, designers, technical instructors, producers, picture/archive researchers and teachers.
