In a fast-changing 24-hour multimedia landscape where everyone with a camera phone is a photographer, our graduates stand out and our continually evolving course enjoys input from the world’s leading photographers, editors and curators.


“Revolutionary”; “inspirational”; “photographic heroes”. These are just some of the things people are saying about our course, which was described as “groundbreaking” by Professional Photographer Magazine.

Why? Because every day we set out to devise and deliver new answers to our core question: “What does it mean to be a 21st century photographer?”. Our students know the answer. If you’d like to find out, then this could be the course for you.

By choosing this course you will benefit from an internationally recognised qualification from an innovative course and exclusive membership of its alumni.

Other benefits include:

  • cutting-edge facilities integrated with industry standard equipment;
  • dedicated and flexible creative learning environments designed for the future;
  • your own high-end laptop with the latest industry-standard production software;
  • access to professional photography equipment via our dedicated Media Loan Shop;
  • mentored engagement with the global photographic industry;
  • expertise in and professional knowledge of working practices of the emerging sectors of new media forms such as open and social media;
  • bespoke tuition in a wide range of specialist photographic techniques;
  • practical activities based around industry-standard equipment;
  • teaching staff who are leaders in their fields and actively work as professional photographers and practitioners internationally recognised for the excellence of their work;
  • ongoing dialogue with industry giants as part of the visiting speaker programme;
  • the chance to collaborate with like-minded students on our partner courses within the Media and Communication department;
  • opportunities for invaluable experience working or studying abroad.



From the outset we will develop your technical skills and teach you to understand what it is to be a professional photographer. We’ll introduce you to wider thematic questions so you’re better equipped to think as an informed image-maker. As the course progresses we invite the international photography community into our classroom, enabling you to engage directly with the industry from our safely-mentored environment.

In the final year you’ll have the knowledge, confidence and expertise to be publishing your own work on an international platform and leveraging those forces that are changing the face of the photographic world.
