There BA Fine Art degree pathways embrace fine art as an open discipline constructed from many different studio practices and a critical involvement with ideas, culture and society. You will explore a range of artistic practices (including installation, performance, painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, digital arts, film and video) through making, research and critique. Our suite of BA degrees opens the door to a wide range of creative and professional possibilities.

Why study BA Fine Art at Middlesex University?

At Middlesex we have the facilities and the expertise to enhance your exploration of all kinds of art, from traditional forms like painting and sculpture to more contemporary approaches including digital arts, installation, and socially engaged practices. We place an emphasis on learning about art practice, history and theory through studio-based teaching and you will benefit from having an individual tutor as well as being part of a small, friendly peer group.

As a student, you will have the freedom to work independently within the tutorial framework so that you can develop self-discipline, experience of making and showing your work, and critical skills. This approach often leads to student-led collaborations, which contribute to the collective ethos of the course. Initiatives have included a range of exhibitions and events, and many collaborative groups have continued professionally beyond Middlesex.
