Fine Art at Kingston offers a dynamic, exploratory environment, in which coalition and nurturing of communities is key. Many of our courses are newly validated, which means we are fresh, ambitious, and innovative. Fine Art students benefit from links with grass roots, alumni-led, and national museums, and journals.
The School of Arts is different to the classic art school/humanities model. Staff and students are encouraged to think creatively and intellectually while creating through writing and practice. With rich and varied courses, it is a collaborative and constructive place to work. Students are sought after throughout the creative industries, with many pursuing networking opportunities with some of our partners within the creative industries.
Kingston University values the diversity of its student and staff body. We actively support and encourage applications from underrepresented communities.
