Queen’s began to admit students to read Fine Art on a regular basis in 2006 and now takes two undergraduates for this subject each year. In the past, our Fine Art students have exhibited their work in the College, won the OUP Pirye Prize for Art, been selected for Bloomberg New Contemporaries, and above all contributed a great deal to the diversity and the fun of being at Queen’s.
Fine Art is a three-year course in which practical work is combined with study of the history and theory of visual culture since 1900.
Teaching is provided entirely by the Ruskin, which is just across the road from Queen’s.
As well as the interview conducted in the Ruskin, which includes a practical test, candidates who apply to Queen’s will receive a College interview where they will be given an opportunity to present their portfolio and talk about their understanding of art.
