University Centre Somerset - Bridgwater & Taunton College has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Our programme of study is designed to promote and develop inventiveness, improvisational skills and the questioning of established practices. With an emphasis on making, students are encouraged to experiment with processes and materials, acquiring new workshop skills and realising the potential for creative processes to communicate ideas visually. This approach to learning also involves transformative experiences with unpredictable visual outcomes. New ways of thinking and problem solving are encouraged and your individual responses are developed in relation to contexts of art practice and to the wider world around you. You’ll have designated studio space and a variety of well equipped workshop facilities. In addition to our End of Year Degree Show, students fundraise to showcase their work to industry at events such as Free Range or City galleries. Career Progression Employment opportunities for Fine Art graduates are many and varied, including creative arts practice, arts administration, teaching, curating, and arts therapy. Many of our students establish their own studios as artists or craftspeople, while others progress to postgraduate study in a related discipline including MA and PGCE programmes.
