About Fine Art at University of Reading

Our MFA Fine Art programme, delivered by dynamic, high-profile international artists, focuses on exhibitions and professional practice.

You will develop creative inquisitiveness and prepare for the professional art world or further research at doctoral level.

All of our staff are practising artists, curators and writers and our research-led teaching offers opportunities for you to engage with exhibition and curatorial initiatives, theoretical texts and publication projects. Art is an active department with events, performances, screenings and shared discussion across disciplines that creates a social environment. We pride ourselves on the quality and vibrancy of our 24-hour studio community. As a student on one of our master’s courses, you will find yourself part of a vibrant postgraduate community and intellectual environment, including staff and PhD students.

Our postgraduate teaching assistant scheme offers you opportunities to gain mentored teaching experience working on our undergraduate programmes.

Our postgraduate environment extends out from Reading through our external exhibitions, symposia and workshops. Participate in our Asia exhibition network with opportunities to exhibit in Japan, China and South Korea.

Our associate partnership with the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London, gives you membership for events, internship opportunities and seminar space in London.
