This two-year course covers a variety of photographic disciplines using a creative, theoretical and practical approach. During year one, students get to grips with the fundamentals of photography including visual language and camera skills.

Year two focuses on progression towards university or employment and allows students to specialise and enhance their skills in specific areas of photography.
In addition to digital image capture and editing techniques, the course also covers traditional analogue and experimental processes including camera film and darkroom methods, mixed media and photographic screen printing.
The course is well equipped with digital cameras, lenses and accessories, industry standard editing software and a large photographic studio.
