The Ruskin School of Art will host its post-graduate Open Day on Friday, November 18. Candidates interested in studying an MFA or DPhil are warmly invited to attend.

The Ruskin’s Open Day begins at 11am at the Ruskin’s new, award-winning studios at 128 Bullingdon Road, Oxford.

You will hear about the Ruskin MFA and DPhil programmes, learn about the Ruskin’s extensive funding opportunities, see our new studios and exhibition spaces, and meet with current tutors and students. Applicants are also welcome to visit independently and informally some of the Oxford colleges that offer places to Ruskin students.

Registration for this event is free. Please register here if you would like to attend.

Graduate Study at the Ruskin
The Ruskin MFA and DPhil are intensive, interdisciplinary programmes based at an intimate art school within one of the world’s leading research universities. Our combination of studio-based learning and rich theoretical debate offers you a uniquely demanding and supportive environment in which to develop an engaged practice in both contemporary art making and contemporary art history.

Your education will be tailored to your key concerns and ideas through Oxford’s famed tutorial system of one-to-one dialogues with your tutors, while studio seminars and artist talks stimulate a collective dynamic through generous and robust discussion. You will be working with Malcolm Bull, John Cussans, Jason Gaiger, Anthony Gardner, Ian Kiaer, Ghislaine Leung, Daria Martin, Corin Sworn, and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye. Recent visiting tutors have included Maria Fusco, William Kentridge, Renzo Martens, Hito Steyerl, and Marina Vishmidt.

The Ruskin School of Art
The Ruskin School of Art is a top-ranked art school at the heart of the University of Oxford devoted to cutting-edge artistic production and rigorous thought. Founded in 1871 by artist and critic John Ruskin (1819–1900), it currently offers BFA, MFA, and DPhil degree courses and boasts a rich learning history, counting many award winners among its past and present students and faculty. The Ruskin is characterized by its focus on the intertwining of practice and theory and emphasizes experimental histories of art and their potential to transform knowledge, forms, and situations.

Alumni of Ruskin’s graduate programmes go on to work in fine art as practising artists, teachers, and art writers, or as curators in public and private galleries and for arts councils and organisations. Many also pursue careers in academia, architecture, and the film industry.
