The starting point for the Bachelor's programme in Fine Art is the artistic work of each individual student. The programme is based on optional choices and independent projects. The aim is to provide you with the theoretical and practical knowledge needed for a career as an artist.

All of the teachers are professionally active artists or art theoreticians. Every year you will be allocated a new teacher to be your personal supervisor. Together you will produce an individual study plan and discuss the works of art you produce.

The programme offers a wide range of optional courses and projects in artistic genres and techniques such as photography, painting, sculpture/installations, video/digital media, performance, aural art, conceptual projects and various hybrids.

Some courses are compulsory, among them workshop courses and courses in art, design and the history of applied art. Written work is of central importance in the development of your thinking about your own artistic processes. You will learn how to seek knowledge independently and practice in how to relate to it. Art theory and artistic practice form an integral part of your studies. Many projects finish with an individual or group exhibition.

We want to encourage critical discussion of the role of the artist in society and arrange seminars on current social issues. Awareness of identity and diversity are important elements in your education. You will be offered preparation for an international career and will meet teachers from different countries. You will be given insight into the field of artistic research.

For admission to the Bachelor's programme in Fine Art you must display experience of artistic practice in your portfolio and have a reflective approach to your own artistic process.
