Why study fine art?

In order to create and sell your own artwork to make a living, you will often have to go through a third party, such as an agent or gallery. Galleries and agencies are more likely to consider your work for display if you have the relevant qualifications to back up your skills as an artist. A BA (Hons) degree in Fine Art will also allow you to charge more for your work.

Many professional artists work in other jobs alongside pursuing their own freelance art ventures. A degree in fine art opens up a number of opportunities in the creative and cultural industries that will allow you to work part-time, or even full-time, at the same time as pursuing your art.
