Fine Art (Research) Arts University Bournemouth


Awarded by: University of the Arts London

Research may combine the practice, theory and /or history of the specialist area and students are guided in their study to define clearly and persuasively what is original and innovative about the chosen topic and how best to present and disseminate arguments and findings, whether this is substantially a written thesis or via a combination of practice (for example, exhibition, installation) and text-based critique; because of the individual nature of study, requirements (for example, for studio space or other specialist resources) are discussed with a supervisor who are able to advise on availability; as well as tutorials with supervisors, students participate in a programme of research methods training.
