University of East London

Course Introduction

Choose to study Fine Art at UEL and you will have the opportunity to work with a range of media, encompassing painting, printmaking, sculpture, video and installation. You'll have access to well'equipped workshops which cater for all the usual Fine Art processes such as printmaking, as well as 16mm film, bronze casting and large scale digital printing facilities. You will benefit from the course's strong links with major institutions, which have resulted in projects with the National Portrait Gallery, the Whitechapel Gallery and Rich Mix. You will learn from noted artists including Faisal Abdu'Allah, Susan Stockwell, Richard Wilson, film'maker John Smith and Turner Prizewinner Grenville Davey, who teach on the course and generously share their practice with students. The campus is close to the vibrant East London gallery scene and all the major art venues in London and in your third year you will have the opportunity to choose the 'Contemporary Practice' module instead of a thesis in, which involves organising your own external group exhibition at a professional venue in London.
