Fine Art and Design
The Fine Art and Design programme (FAAD) aims at students who seek to develop an independent and original creative practice in the field of fine art or design. The programme curriculum places an emphasis on facilitating creative experiments and collaboration, while also sustaining self-reflection and critical scrutiny in a caring and responsive setting. Further emphasis is placed on students' ability to conduct research based on their practice and for the purposes of their practice.
The aim of the programme is to equip students with competencies that would allow them to produce individual and collaborative work that is innovative, critical, and engaged in contemporary fine art and design debates. Graduates of the programme are able to take up a career as independently practicing artists or designers or as part of creative teams and interdisciplinary collectives. They are also well-suited for pursuing PhD programmes in the fields of fine art, design, and related disciplines.
The Faculty of Fine Arts makes effort to integrate students with special needs in studies.
Applicants from diverse cultural backgrounds are encouraged to apply. Applicants to the FAAD postgraduate programme are expected to hold a first degree in fine art or design or to evidence an established fine art or design practice sufficient to qualify them for entry. Applicants must show through their portfolio and personal statement, that they are able to produce innovative work appropriate to the complexity of concerns within contemporary fine art or design and to demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of the creative and critical context of their work.
