This course is built around an individually negotiated, semester-long, extended project to be taken in any of the School of Art's studio discipline areas: Ceramics, Furniture, Glass, Gold and Silversmithing, Painting, Photography and Media Arts, Printmedia and Drawing, Sculpture or Textiles.

Students in this course carry out practice-led research on a project of their choice. The project proposal will be negotiated between the student and a proposed supervisor. Students must gain the formal agreement of a staff member to supervise them before enrolling in this course.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this course, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
  1. Identify and articulate a viable and substantial, practice-led project.
  2. Plan and manage an extended studio-based investigation.
  3. Develop an investigative, analytical and practical methodology.
  4. Analyse disciplinary debates and knowledge relevant to the project.
  5. Realise, document and present an extended investigative practice-led research project.

Other Information

The progressive outcomes of the studio practice based courses are assessed by periodic critique plus mid-review sessions and end-of-semester presentation to an assessment panel. Critique sessions will provide advice on work in progress in response to approved projects, the mid-semester reviews will provide indicative advice on a student's achievement against the criteria, and the end of semester presentation will assess the final outcomes against the agreed requirements of course projects.
