At Elam you will be part of an interdisciplinary studio programme, enabling you to work across a variety of media and art forms. As your level of study progresses, you will move from guided learner to independent researcher and creative professional.

You will graduate with the skills you’ll need to initiate and sustain a career as an exhibiting artist. A qualification in fine arts could also provide entry into many other creative occupations, including: animator, art critic, art curator, art educator, art gallery director, arts writer, commercial photographer, creative director in an agency, film director and set designer.

Elam offers advanced research qualifications in the form of the Doctor of Fine Arts (DocFA) and the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD). Please visit our Doctoral study at Elam page to learn more about these programmes and available supervisors.
