About this course

In the Bachelor of Fine Arts with Honours - BFA (Hons) - you'll spend two thirds of your time in the studio, experiencing different approaches to making art, and developing your own unique practice.

The programme isn't media specific so you can focus on the methods and ideas of contemporary art production, and make bodies of new work that are responsive to a variety of contexts. Work, learn and collaborate alongside with students across disciplines and year levels.

You can work across a range of media, such as:

  • sculpture
  • painting

  • moving image
  • photography
  • printmaking
  • site-responsive work
  • curatorial activities
  • art writing.

The BFA (Hons) will stretch you, ground you in art theory and immerse you in art-making, with the support of some of New Zealand's most notable fine artists.

We are looking for creative, enthusiastic and dedicated students who demonstrate skill and passion for design and the visual arts.
