Course outline

Study time

Study is divided across taught hours, studio and/or work environment time, and independent study. Excellent professional, academic and technical support is available and students are encouraged to experiment and work collaboratively on self-initiated projects. We expect students to spend an average of 40 hours per week on their studies, although it is likely that these hours will vary throughout the academic year.

The course is broken down into the following formats of study:

Year 1

Year 1 introduces you to the technical skills, historical and contemporary practices and theoretical issues that are fundamental to contemporary photography.

These will help you work on a series of visual projects that address contemporary practice, challenge your creativity and give you a grounding in in all aspects of photographic production.
