The BA (Hons) in Fine Art and Contemporary Arts Practice allows students who have completed a 2-year FDA in Fine Art or Design &Materials to top-up their studies to a full BA (Hons) degree. This one-year programme forms effectively the third year of a BA programme and is also open to external applicants with similar relevant previous education. The aim of this programme is to support students in finding their individual voice as artists, makers or creative practitioners and providing the studio experience, practical skills, contextual knowledge and professional practice to prepare you for a career in the creative sector. The programme is built around studio practice and full time students have dedicated studio space. Delivery takes place in form of lectures, seminars, tutorials and workshops. Scheduled visits to galleries and exhibitions, a varied programme of Visiting Lecturers and the opportunity to exhibit at the Bristol School of Art degree show will make this an unforgettable experience.
