Slade School of Fine Art



The Slade offers two undergraduate programmes, the BA and the BFA in Fine Art; two Masters programmes, the MA and MFA in Fine Art; the MPhil/PhD in Fine Art, plus affiliate student programmes at all levels. An experimental research-oriented approach is at the heart of a studio-centred teaching environment, with each student - from BA/BFA through to PhD - expected to conduct individual and original research from day one.
