Foundation Entry degree courses are designed for students who have the ability to study for a degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to enter directly onto their chosen Honours degree programme. The modern world is saturated in imagery. Understanding how to interpret it and create it are now key skills for contemporary living. Our practical photography degree aims to help you develop a clear understanding of how photographs can be used to communicate and express yourself in the professional world of the creative industries. Intensive workshop sessions will allow you to pick up relevant skills and undertake innovative types of visual problem solving. Carrying out work placements and collaborating on live client-based briefs will help equip you with the relevant vocational skills and experiences you need to follow a career as a professional photographer. On this course you’ll develop strong critical, creative and technical abilities, giving you the skills to work in photography or as part of the wider creative industries, from writers to curators, picture editors to educators. Our graduates have gone on to work as freelance fashion photographers, sports photographers, and work in digital editing, film-making and further study. The course is also home to a strong postgraduate culture. You will have the chance to attend Free Range (a professional practice event held in London) in your third year and exhibit your work. You’ll have the opportunity to study abroad with Erasmus in Year 2 (Year 3 if you started in the Foundation Entry), with many students choosing California. You’ll also have the chance to go on a range of School sponsored trips to places like Europe, Africa and China to work on international projects. Get the practical real-life experiences you’ll need to succeed by working on live briefs based around your own personal type of working practice.
