Graduate Showcase - Fís

Throughout the year we host a range of events to showcase our student work including film screenings and performances by our music and theatre students. Fís is the final showcase of graduate student work from the Department and is a wonderful event in which to celebrate the achievements of our students who have worked so hard to produce their projects and installations being exhibited as part of Fís.

There is great diversity of work being undertaken by our students. While the students on each of these programmes have a different focus on their programme of study, each student has the opportunity to develop their skills in creativity.
