Our next Open Day is on Friday 15th September. We look forward to meeting you! Both the morning and afternoon sessions have 'sold out' but even if you haven't been able to secure a place, please turn up when doors open at either 9.30 or 2pm, and we will try and accommodate all prospective students. We do ask that all accompanying parents, carers and teachers do not take a seat unless invited, so that we can ensure as many students are able to attend as possible.
The BFA is a three-year, studio-based course in which students work alongside each other in collaboratively organised studios. It allows students to engage with the diversity of disciplines that shape contemporary art, including painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, installation, video, sound, performance and other experimental forms.
The Ruskin School of Art actively engages with many initiatives and collaborations each year in order to further develop the professional understanding and practice of its Fine Art students.
Each year, the University of Oxford offers a selection of art related prizes and awards. Ruskin students are invited to consider these opportunities in a bid to encourage their artistic development in new areas and are presented with awards in recognition of their expertise and success.
The Ruskin MFA degree is an intensive, interdisciplinary programme in the practice of contemporary art, designed to support studio-based and theoretical components of your artistic practice.
In 2017, the Ruskin's Graduate Open Day will be held on Thursday 16 November at 128 Bullingdon Road, Oxford OX4 1QP.

The Ruskin School of Art welcomes interest from suitably qualified applicants in this year’s British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship scheme.
The Ruskin School of Art provides an exceptional environment in which research through art making is entwined with research about contemporary art, each mode of enquiry enriching the other within the larger context of a world-leading, research-intensive university.
