MFA Fine Art, Belfast. 

Established in 1979, this rigorous studio-based programme is delivered with the expertise of a staff of internationally recognised artists. Within the studio environment the diversity of the teaching staff reflects the range of approaches and contexts it embraces. It recognises contemporary art practice as open and pluralistic, encouraging dialogue between diverse disciplines. This approach facilitates working in a flexible manner to offer maximum opportunities for individual practice and exploration of traditional exhibition formats alongside broader experimental models of practice, production and dissemination.  Central to our ethos is a networked relationship within the local, national and international arts ecology and its alumni are recognised internationally as established artists, curators and educators.
