AHRC Research Preparation Masters in Fine Art

AHRC Research Preparation Masters in Fine Art

University of Brighton and University of Chichester Consortium

The University of Brighton and the University of Chichester Consortium are inviting applications for one research preparation masters award in Fine Art to commence in October 2013. This studentship is part of the Consortium’s Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) Block Grant Partnership (Capacity Building) secured in 2011.

Award: Fine Art MA (at the University of Brighton)

The MA in Fine Art is a dynamic course which focuses on group debate and student-led projects. It explores the many issues and techniques available to contemporary artists in terms of subject matter and process. Successful selection onto the course is underpinned by an individual`s Research Statement which outlines the media and concepts that the student seeks to investigate. A rolling programme of student exhibitions and seminars puts personal expression, group curation and public display at the centre of this work.

Research preparation masters studentships aim to support applicants in developing their research career or plans. As such, the student will be able to access research training opportunities provided by the Faculty of Arts.

The studentship is one year full-time in duration (two years part-time), and will pay your fees and provide a stipend. Rates for 2013/14 have not yet been set by the AHRC but last year the figure was £9,490 per annum (pro-rata for part-time). This award starts on 1st October 2013.
