Life as a fine art student at NTU

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.
