Course content

This highly vocational postgraduate course is aimed at supporting and challenging you in terms of ideas, creativity and ambitions, in order to build and expand your photographic (and moving image) portfolio and output.

The course welcomes photographers from a wide range of backgrounds as well as those who have studied photography at undergraduate level. We are looking for passion and a commitment to exploring and questioning the medium of photography. We want you to produce high quality work that will aid either your personal development or your career ambitions within the creative industries.

Our modules guide students towards recognising potential themes and exploring them using an extended range of approaches and techniques. In addition, an extensive range of workshops will cover such disciplines as high-level digital studio work, moving image and video editing, book production, black and white darkroom work and alternative process techniques.

The process of developing and realising a major portfolio of work is key during your time on the course. A final extended major project gives scope to fully develop your own ideas, informed by previous experimentation and investigation in the earlier modules. Underpinning your practice will be the application of research skills, scholarship and the ability to engage with different markets and audiences to enhance your employability and ability to work as a photographer.
