MFA Fine Art

The MFA Fine Art at Ulster University was established in 1979 and has a long and proven track record of providing a rigorous studio-based programme with access to the expertise of a core staff of nationally and internationally recognised visiting artists. A multidisciplinary/inter-media approach enables student to work in a flexible manner that offers the maximum opportunity for individual practice. Students are asked to engage with systems of enquiry that explore and embrace traditional exhibition formats alongside wider models of production, distribution and dissemination. The MFA supports committed, critically engaged and sustainable professional practice. The 2010 Turner Prize was won by MFA graduate Susan Phillipsz (1994). Other nominated graduates include Phil Collins, Cathy Wilkes and Christine Borland. Graduates of the MFA have been substantially represented over the years in other high-profile events and prizes, including the Venice Biennale, Becks Futures, The Nissan Art Award, New Contemporaries, The John Moore’s Prize and the Glenn Dimplex Award. Two graduates have been awarded the highly competitive Paul Hamlyn Award.
