About this course
The emphasis of our Photography degree is based around your creative development and ability to work both independently and as part of a team.
You will study the key legal and ethical aspects of photography, applying these to your professional and photographic practice.
We have fully equipped on-campus studios and darkroom facilities and offer all students free-of-charge loan of professional photography equipment and resources as well as access to our Mac computer suite, so you’ll have all you need to continue to develop your photography skills and experience.
During your degree, you will work towards a final year portfolio and exhibition. You will also complete professional work placements which form an integral part of your curriculum.
In your final year, you can extend your professional understanding of the discipline and build your portfolio through an additional longer term placement in the creative industries.
Through professional practices and guidance workshops and collaborations with organisations such as the National Media and Science Museum, you’ll learn how to seek out suitable career opportunities.
