University of Brighton has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
One of the few specialist degrees of its kind, this course trains you in the traditions of printmaking as well as related contemporary processes – from drawing and collage to photography, artists’ books and digital technologies.
The Fine Art Printmaking course stimulates creative exploration, imagination and intellectual inquiry leading to exciting, innovative practice. Visits to galleries and volunteer work will improve your understanding of professional practice, as will opportunities to exhibit your work.
Links with local arts communities provide opportunities for creative engagement in schools, galleries or studios. We also have international links with the University of Nagoya, Japan, which runs an exchange programme available by competitive application.
Located in the heart of Brighton's creative community, the course benefits from one of the UK’s best-equipped printmaking workshops, with facilities for etching, screen print, lithography, relief and digital print.
