Photography (with Foundation Year)

Course Introduction

This extended course is perfect if you want a degree in Photography but you don’t meet the standard entry requirements.

First we prepare you for your degree during the Foundation year, bringing you up to speed with academic skills and a firm grounding in the subject. Then you can go on to do the full undergraduate degree.

You could be focusing on the catwalk at a top London fashion show. Or on a commercial shoot for a major magazine advertisement campaign. Or joining one of the world’s best photographers on a job. The course is a practical one, designed to excite and challenge at the same time as it teaches you.

Affiliated to the Association of Photographers, the leading organisation representing professionals in the industry, our course will arm you with the skills to make a living from photography.

It's no coincidence that our graduates have so often gone on to successful careers, establishing highly successful studios or being assistants to the best in the industry.

It’s because they’ve been instructed by renowned photographers in the full range of the subject, from commercial photography, fashion and portraiture to still life, landscape, moving image and fine art.
