MA Art Practice/PhD
After graduating with a degree in Fine Art in 2011, I came to Wrexham Glyndwr University and started a full-time Masters in Art Practice, which I completed in 2012. Throughout my Masters I developed my art practice and became increasingly interested in the area of arts in health. After graduating I won the ‘Out and Beyond’ Axis Wales Award.
I was nominated by Wrexham Glyndwr for this award and it meant that I was partnered with the Curator of Oriel Davies, Newtown who supported my professional development and art practice for the following year. Throughout this year I also wrote my PhD proposal and enrolled at Wrexham Glyndwr University for a part-time PhD in November 2013.
I carried on to do a PhD as I really enjoyed the supportive environment of the university. I also felt that there were many different opportunities to engage in other projects which improved my employability.
I really enjoyed my Masters’ and was supported fully. My supervision for my PhD has been excellent and I have been encouraged and supported to develop my research. I have been able to work on numerous external projects, which has been vital for progressing my career. I have also been involved in different research projects and events which is vital experience for my aim of becoming a lecturer. My PhD is practice-led and the facilities at the university and specialist knowledge from numerous lecturers has meant that I have been able to create a wide range of different artworks and learn skills in different materials.
Wrexham Glyndwr University provides a supportive environment which encourages you to reach your full potential. There are lots of different opportunities and projects available which allow you to develop your subject whilst also improving your employability.
