BA Fine Arts

The study of art begins with personal attitudes, inclinations and questions put by students. The need for specific artistic knowledge and skills is derived from those approaches. That is where training begins. It comprises the development of technical and artistic practice and imparts knowledge of art theory and the understanding of art.


Students freely choose their own media and themes, which they then take further by making use of the broad range of modules. Personal work in the studio, accompanied by mentoring by established artists, is the focus of this course of training.


The Bachelor degree programme does not constitute a professional qualification, but it does lay the foundation for initial artistic creativity, which is developed further in the Master’s degree programme.
