Program Description:

Our Master of Fine Arts is a two-year low residency programme, which requires, as a prerequisite for matriculation, a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree or equivalent education and professional experience. It is designed to enable students with demonstrated commitment, experience and ability to build on their maturity as creative individuals, and establish a robust basis for continued creative expression. It is built around a comprehensive programme of supervised studio research and theoretical studies requiring self-directed learning and continuing professional development. Our MFA programme allows you to undertake Masters level study without disrupting your work routines; enabling you to consolidate your position within your local community. Additionally, the opportunity for all participants to come into contact with internationally renowned artists, critics and curators is also exciting; participants are able to develop a network that may otherwise be impossible to achieve.
