More about Sarah
What do you enjoy most about your course?
"The tutors and technicians are fantastic – such expertise and generosity of knowledge. The technical facilities are good and the campus is in the centre of town."
What made you choose to study at NTU?
"I attended an open event, where I managed to talk to the course leader which was really useful. I liked the fact that Fine Art welcomes interdisciplinary practices, the calibre of tutors, the conversations I had with the course leader, the range of facilities, the fact that they offered a two year full time MFA course and that you could take a PhD preparation module as part of it."
How do you find the facilities?
"I mainly work in the ceramics, moving image, sound and casting departments and the facilities are good. The technicians are very generous with their expertise, creative thinking and time."
What do you enjoy most about living and studying in Nottingham?
"It is not expensive, and it’s culturally diverse and alive with some great cultural organisations including Broadway, Dance4, Nottingham Playhouse and Primary. Nottingham supports a lot of independent retailers and makers, cafes and restaurants, and so the city is an interesting place to be. There is a main public square in the centre which is often animated by events. Public transport is good and it is easy to travel to London for the day. Nottingham City Council is developing some really interesting projects around place-making and sustainability, too."
How do you think the course, and having a postgraduate qualification, will help you progress your career?
"I have taken on further study to develop my thinking and enrich my life."
