Pursue Your Passion

If you're an ambitious designer and want to experiment with a variety of materials such as glass, textiles, plaster, clay, fine metals, plastics, resin and wood, then read on to find out more about our BA (Hons) Fine Art course. Here at Nottingham Trent University, we're ranked 12th best University for Art and Design in the UK (Complete University Guide 2021).

BA (Hons) Fine Art

As a fine art student at NTU, you'll be encouraged to explore with a sense of curiosity, creating work quickly and developing your ideas into more focused, self-negotiated fine art practice. Through a series of workshops, you'll experiment with different media before focusing on what is right for your own practice. There's no better place to study a creative degree than in Nottingham - its vibrant art scene is home to a thriving network of galleries and art spaces - which our students regularly exhibit at throughout their degree.

"As soon as I visited I knew I needed to be here; everything about NTU was so vibrant and invigorating, I remember walking through the studios and thinking I need to be a part of this." Chris Preece, BA (Hons) Fine Art
