Program description

Photography

Working at an industry level, you’ll research, experiment and innovate to build a unique creative portfolio in a collaborative environment. Underpinning your practice will be a grounding in the history, theory, professional contexts and working practices of photography.

You will:

  • Learn actively through workshop-based teaching, with sessions in our open-plan Learning Hub, around the campus and beyond.
  • Access state-of-the-art facilities, including studios and dark rooms, with a range of digital and analogue cameras.
  • Exhibit your work and enter competitions with support from our staff.
  • Have the chance to undertake at least two weeks of work experience in your second year, with options for local, national and international placements.
  • Benefit from a range of opportunities for professional development, including publishing magazines, curating events and organising exhibitions.

Admission requirements

We consider all applications on their own individual merit and potential. We invite all applicants to an interview day or audition to give them the opportunity to demonstrate this along with what inspires and motivates them in their field. Applicants will also be able to show their portfolio or give a performance depending on the course. We welcome applications from all subject backgrounds, whether you’ve specialised in STEM, the arts or humanities.

As a guide our typical offer at undergraduate level is 104 – 120 UCAS Tariff points, primarily from Level 3 qualifications such as but not limited to A-levels, a BTEC Extended Diploma or a Foundation Diploma.

Language requirements

For applicants whose first language is English we require you to have or be working towards GCSE English Language Grade 4 (C), or equivalent.

If English is not your first language you will need to meet the same standard, which is equivalent to the IELTS Academic 6.0 overall score, with at least 5.5 in Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening. We accept a range of in country equivalencies and approved tests.

If you need a Tier 4 student visa to study in the UK, you'll need to take a recognised language test that is approved and vouched for by the University.

Qualification

What you'll learn

This photography degree course will help you develop the skills for a broad range of careers in the creative industries. Modules encompass the specialisms of fine art, commercial, editorial, fashion, social documentary, architecture, and performance photography, through to associated career areas such as curating, publishing, and education.

Throughout your studies, you’ll benefit from a purpose-built, professional-standard photographic resource that enables engagement with the latest high-end digital technology alongside traditional analogue photography. A highly skilled team of technical instructors and technicians will build your confidence in technical areas, photo studios, darkrooms and digital print services.

The skills you’ll gain on this course fall into two categories: subject-specific skills that are directly related to the varied disciplines of photographic practice, and universal transferable skills that apply to a wide variety of contexts, such as research, contextual understanding, collaboration and communication.

Career opportunities

Our graduates have gone on to roles like photographer at Cadbury, Big Sky Studios and the Tate Gallery, curator for Midlands Art Centre and sub-editor of Monocle magazine. Others have exhibited at Photographers’ Gallery London and LA Noble Gallery.
