Our Fine Art and Art History BA course helps you realise your creative potential in fine art and develops skills to understand contemporary art. You will explore traditional forms of painting and sculpture with new forms such as film and digital printmaking. You will also develop visual analysis skills and historical knowledge by exploring a range of images, texts and objects.
We were ranked at number 6 in the UK (out of 66) for art in the Guardian University League Tables 2018. This is a rise of 23 places from our 2017 ranking.
Kingston University is an associate of the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA), so you will receive free membership and access to seminars and events. Our links to industry also include the Tate, Stanley Picker Gallery, Drawing Room, Five Years and Traffic.
