The Ruskin's Graduate Open Day for those interested in the MFA and DPhil programmes will be on 15 November at 128 Bullingdon Road, Oxford OX4 1QP.
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 University-wide Open Days for 2018 are now over. Dates for our 2019 Open Days are Wednesday 3 July, Thursday 4 July and Friday 20 September.
The Ruskin, as the department of Fine Art at the University of Oxford, rarely ever leaves the top spot in the Art & Design subject table, and this year the School has proved itself again.
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.
The Ruskin is delighted that Brook Andrew, who joined the School's DPhil Programme in 2017, has been appointed Artistic Director of the 22nd edition of the Biennale of Sydney.
