The offer of entry onto a Masters Degree (MA) is based on an expectation that you have the potential to fulfil the aims of the course of study and achieve the standard required to successfully complete the award. Applicants are normally expected to possess an BA degree in fine arts, applied arts or design, or have equivalent experience. Graduates from related disciplines who can demonstrate a suitable level of visual literacy may be considered. Applicants who do not have a BA but who have had experience in the field, may also be considered. All candidates must submit a portfolio with their application, which should normally consist of 10-20 images that represent their area of interest.

  • Having a professional experience as equivalent to an undergraduate degree
  • Prior experiential learning, the outcome of which can be shown to be equivalent to formal qualifications otherwise required
  • A combination of formal qualifications and experiential learning that, taken together, can be shown to be equivalent to formal qualifications otherwise required
