In Cambridge, the course has developed particularly strong links with art organisations including Aid & Abet, Changing Spaces, Wysing Arts and Cambridge Artworks, with many alumni actively involved in these and with projects further afield. New developments include the programming of a specialist Fine Art Professional Practice day, aimed at both students and alumni.
Full-time students take 2 core modules per semester (equivalent to 60 credits), followed by the Masters Project (also 60 credits) over one full calendar year; part-time students take 1 module per semester (equivalent to 30 credits), followed by the masters project (60 credits) over 2 years.
In addition to teaching time on-campus, all courses require intensive self-guided learning, research or private study and there may also be optional training, seminars, visits, lectures or master classes to attend.
Assessment of core practice modules is based upon submission of visual research outcomes supported by a supporting statement submitted on completion of each module. Essay submission forms the primary method of assessment for the Masters Dissertation.
