In choosing to study a joint degree in Fine Art / Irish at Aberystwyth University you will be taught by two prestigious departments. The School of Art is one of the best Art departments in the UK and you will study Irish with us in the oldest and largest of Wales’s Welsh Departments. This is a 4 year course that included a year abroad.
The School of Art focuses on integrating traditional skills with contemporary practice and theory to produce first-class fine art students. In placing drawing at the heart of the student experience and in light of the recent revival of interest in traditional drawing skills, the School of Art at Aberystwyth is at the vanguard of contemporary art education.
The Department of Welsh and Celtic Studies has an active community of students and researchers who share a vision: to promote a wider understanding of the Welsh language and the other Celtic languages, their history, their literature and their place in the modern world.
