Whether you're a professional photographer or have just completed your undergraduate degree and want a career as a photographer, gallerist, curator or academic, our creative MA Photography course will take your photography and engagement with visual culture to new heights.

You will explore photography as a tool for artistic expression and cultural storytelling, utilising photography in a post-internet context - developing actual and /or virtual photography exhibitions and publications, learn basic binding techniques and experiment with sequencing, editing and developing a series of publications.

You will study at our dedicated Institute of the Arts, where you will become part of our friendly creative community, inspired to let your artistic expression flourish and build a collection of creative work for exhibitions.
