Important information
What are the course objectives?

At Middlesex we have the facilities and the expertise to enhance your exploration of all kinds of art, from the more traditional forms like painting and sculpture to more contemporary approaches including digital arts and installation. We place an emphasis on learning about art history, theory and practice through studio based teaching and you will benefit from having an individual tutor as well as being part of a small, friendly peer group.



As a student, you will have the freedom to work independently within the tutorial framework so that you can develop self discipline and the confidence to comment critically. This approach often leads to student led collaborations, which contribute to the collective ethos of the course. Initiatives have included a range of exhibitions and events, and many collaborative groups have continued professionally beyond Middlesex.

Requirements: Interviews, entrance tests, portfolios and auditions The application is just the first step in our selection process, we also invite you to an interview and review your portfolio of art and design work. Your interview The interview itself usually lasts about 15 minutes, but please allow an hour as this usually includes a tour of our facilities. We use the interview to allow us to find out more about you, to better understand your aspirations and interests and for you to learn more about us. The interview will explore why you want to study the subject with...
