Individual Undergraduate Study Abroad

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

Students are assigned their own studio space for the duration of their programme, to which they have access 24/7. Our courses are delivered both in-studio, on a tutorial basis or as group courses. Tutorial courses are taught through scheduled 1-to-1 contact in a students own studio, supplemented by regular scheduled group presentations, discussions and critiques. Group courses are taught as a unified class, with all students present with the tutor at the same time, along with individual advising sessions.

Students normally take 5 courses during the semester, each carrying 3 credits. There is a diverse array of courses from which to choose in the areas of Painting, Sculpture, Drawing, Photography, as well as adjunct courses such as Mixed Media, Art in Context and Live Art. We also offer non-studio courses in Art History, Creative Writing and Irish Studies; an essential element of a semester abroad in this part of the world. Courses are available at Introductory, Intermediate, Advanced and Independent level and a full description of the range of courses is available in our Study Abroad Prospectus and in the adjacent online tabs.

A weekly visiting artist programme, regular trips to galleries in Dublin, London and Berlin as well as local galleries and visual art festivals in the West of Ireland ensure students are exposed to the best of European contemporary art.
