Welcome to the Fine Art Foundation Course

If you can’t decide which Bachelor’s programme at the HKU School of Fine Art is right for you, taking the Fine Art Foundation Course is a good place to start. This course gives you ample space to develop your creative talents and build a portfolio. It also prepares you for the entrance exam for a Bachelor’s at HKU Fine Art.

In brief

  • The course runs for 27 weeks
  • You’ll have classes once a week from September through to April
  • The classes are on Friday from 10 a.m. to 3:15 p.m.
  • The study load is about 6 to 8 hours per week (including homework)

How do you know the Fine Art Foundation Course is right for you?

The Foundation Course is designed for anyone wanting to do a Bachelor’s degree at the HKU School of Fine Art in either Fine Art or Fine Art and Design in Education. If you’re still undecided about which of these to choose, the Foundation Course is the right option for you.

Following the admissions process for one of the Bachelor’s programmes at HKU Fine Art, the committee may advise you to do the foundation course first. This means that they recognise your creative talent but don’t regard it as sufficiently developed for the Bachelor’s programme. In the Fine Art Foundation Course, you’ll work towards the entrance exam once again.

Why choose the Fine Art Foundation Course at HKU?

Through hard work, you’ll become well acquainted with HKU, the HKU Fine Art programmes and the lecturers. On the Fine Art Foundation Course,  specialist teachers will review and assess your work. Under supervision, you’ll be stimulated and challenged as you develop your talent further and put together a quality portfolio.
