University of East London

Course Introduction

Our course encourages you to develop your ambitious and innovative work within the supportive atmosphere of studio'based practice and under the close supervision of some of Britain's leading artists. We've been providing opportunities for ground'breaking talent since the Chapman brothers started making their dramatic impression back in the 1980s. Now, Professor Grenville Davey, the 1992 Turner Prize winner who runs the course, believes it just keeps getting better. The core elements of the course are designed to be challenging and enjoyable, to offer a rich, vibrant and varied experience in the fine arts. There is a strong professional practice element so you will be encouraged to get involved in 'real world' projects ' usually exhibitions, commissions, or residencies. The course culminates in the degree show, which is a significant showcase for your work, attracting large numbers of visitors from the art world as well as the general public.
