How to Apply

Application to the MFA can be made throughout the year by submitting an online application form accompanied by an online portfolio of recent work and statement [500 word maximum] evaluating your recent studio work and indicating why you have applied for the MFA at Northumbria. A slide list providing the title and information about the media and date of individual works should accompany your application.

You can also apply for one of our three BALTIC Scholarships available for 2014/15, please indicate if you wish to be considered for a scholarship on your application form and return it to us by Monday 2nd June 2014.

The online portfolio should comprise 10-20 images of recent work and/or video files totalling no longer that 10 minutes duration. Images should be saved as jpegs (72dpi) or as PDF or Powerpoint.  Alternatively URL links can be given to evidence of work online.

Visual work can also be sent as jpegs/powerpoint on CD or video on DVD [PAL format only] to our admissions department:

Supporting material should be securely packaged and clearly labelled with your name and address; Northumbria University cannot accept responsibility for any loss/damage. You should write 'MFA Fine Art Portfolio' and your name on the outside of the envelope so that it can be matched with your application.

Only complete applications together with portfolios can be considered. We examine portfolios, and may then invite you to attend an interview. Applicants not based in the UK are not required to attend an interview, however, we may conduct an interview via Skype. The decision to offer a place will be based on interviews along with the completed application form, portfolio, the supporting statement and references.

If you would like to visit our facilities and discuss the course with staff this can be arranged by contacting course leaders Fiona Crisp or Sandra Johnston.

Apply Online - please remember to indicate if you are applying for the BALTIC Scholarship in your application and remember that scholarship applications must be received by Monday 2nd June 2014.
