Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design MFA Programme

The Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design (DJCAD), part of the University of Dundee in Scotland, offers a one year MFA programme. All forms of art practice are embraced, from media-based sculpture, painting, photography, drawing, printmaking, audio and video to the non-media-specific such as performance, installation, (durational) work in the public domain, writing (critical, and writing-as-visual-art) and curating.

The MFA Programme is seeking highly motivated students who want to be part of a vibrant artistic community. The MFA course aims to challenge and extend its students' work and relationship to the visual world. Students are encouraged to transcend boundaries by exploring visual knowledge and expression across a range of platforms and they will investigate historical and contemporary positions in art and visual culture through exposure to ideas in artistic research, aesthetics, anthropology, critical theory and curatorial practice.

Teaching includes one-to-one sessions, group critiques, seminars, exhibitions, performances, conferences, workshops, salons and study trips.

Students are encouraged to engage in studio-based practice, research-based work and (interdisciplinary) seminars with international visiting artists and speakers.

Scholarships ranging from GBP 500 to 2000 are available. More information on scholarships can be found on DJCAD's website.
