Study Fine Art

West Dean College of Arts & Conservation is renowned for its Fine Art programmes, with graduates going on to practice and exhibit internationally. The department’s ethos of encouraging diverse interdisciplinary practice, together with its support of specialist subjects, attracts students interested in radical approaches to art and those with a strong emphasis on making in studio practice.

Exceptionally large studios, excellent facilities, and an outstanding student-to-staff ratio ensure students are supported to challenge themselves and push the boundaries of contemporary Fine Art practice.

Graduate Diploma and MFA programmes are further supported by a programme of Artists-in-Residence, regular Visiting Artists and Associate Tutors, and a campus that features an Historic House, unique Collection and Archives, and a wider Estate of 6,000 acres within the South Downs National Park.
