The BxNU Master of Fine Art is a unique postgraduate course delivered by Northumbria University in partnership with BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art.

The two-year course is based within the vibrant studio culture of the BxNU Institute of Contemporary Art at BALTIC 39, where a network of internationally active artists, academics and curators provide world-class teaching and mentorship in contemporary art practice and research.

The purpose-designed studio and exhibition spaces at BALTIC 39 are the focal point of the course where students are supported to develop their individual practice, through experimentation and critical reflection. A multi-disciplinary approach to fine art is endorsed and all forms of artistic practice are welcome. As an MFA student you will take advantage of talks and symposia organised in response to the gallery’s exhibition programme and participate in collaborative events like the innovative Peer to Peer and RESPOND programmes, all of which embody the spirit of openness and exchange at BALTIC 39.

Vice-Chancellor Scholarships available for UK/EU applicants.

Applications are recommended before Thursday 1 June for entry in September. Applications after this date applications will be reviewed subject to there being space remaining on the course. An Open Day also takes place on Wednesday 17 May 2017. Book here.
