Course summary

This Photography and Film course is an innovative multi-genre programme that combines practice, theory and professionalism, encouraging you to acquire unique approaches to these disciplines. It has been developed for students with a passion for independent photography, film and cinema – poetic, narrative, conceptual and documentary - with an emphasis on digital and analogue imagery. Whether you prefer to work with the still or moving image, you can creatively and conceptually explore film and photography on our inspiring, challenging and rewarding degree. You’ll discover a range of skills such as how the lens can be used creatively as a tool for storytelling and non-linear poetics, specialist and experimental camera techniques, lighting for studio and location work, editing and post-production, to support you on your career path in the creative industries. Led by professionals bridging fine art, documentary and commercial practice you will develop and research your own ideas in relation to project briefs, learning transferable skills needed to work as an imaginative professional. You will generate and produce ideas through location and studio work and be guided in making submissions for international galleries, expositions, festivals, drama, documentary, advertising, music media and other forms of digital imagery and visual effects. There is also the opportunity to study abroad through the Erasmus Scheme in order to secure work and sustain your career. The programme provides excellent professional grounding for future careers in the arts and media, academia or working within a broad range of professional contexts within the creative industries.

Assessment consists of entirely of coursework, from practical portfolio assignments to essays and presentations enabling you develop creatively based upon feedback. You will gain a high level of realistic and practical experience of working in the professional creative environment whilst you are on the programme.
