Assessment

Year 1

The first year consists of approximately 40% theoretical teaching and 60% practical instruction and studio practice.

Assessment at the end of the first year is based on: the continuous assessment of studio work; and a set of written and practical Qualifying Examinations. Students must pass the Qualifying Examinations in order to continue to the second year.

Year 2

In the second year, students work on studio projects, assisting and supervised by staff, and undertake, with guidance, the examination and analysis of painting materials and techniques.

Assessment in the second year is based on the submission of four 5000 word essays and two seminar presentations, on subjects agreed with staff. 

Year 3

In the third year, students must submit a project of up to 10,000 words containing original research of publishable quality. Students also make a reconstruction of part of a chosen painting, using the techniques and materials employed by the artist. 

The studio work and written work submitted in the third year is examined by viva at the end of the third year.

Throughout the course, students are required to create a portfolio recording practical work and this is also submitted at the end of the third year.
