Course Introduction

**Why study this course?**

Our Fashion Photography (including foundation year) BA (Hons) is designed to help you build a portfolio of work and gain the necessary skills to begin an undergraduate degree at The Cass.

It's the ideal choice if you’d like to study photography but don’t meet the necessary requirements for the three-year degree or would like to polish your skills before embarking on more rigorous study. On graduation you’ll be awarded the same title as students on the three-year degree.

**More about this course**

Our Fashion Photography (including foundation year) BA (Hons) employs an imaginative approach to teaching to help you explore your potential within different creative practices and guides you towards establishing your own creative direction. You’ll end the year with a portfolio of high-quality work, which will evidence all of your newly acquired skills and your growth as a creative practitioner.

Our foundation year (Year 0) will incorporate all the art, design, photography and architecture disciplines at The Cass, so it will be shared with students studying other disciplines at the School. The shared curriculum will incorporate a range of short-term and long-term projects, during which you’ll gain a range of practical skills such as observational drawing, creative drawing, conceptual modeling, practical making, performance, colour, collage, curating and exhibiting. These techniques and creative practices will be framed in historical, contemporary and cultural discourse, allowing you to engage intellectually and help you develop into an informed and socially-engaged practitioner.

During the subsequent three-years of your studies, you’ll begin to focus on the discipline of fashion photography and you'll be joined by students who are in Year 1 of the standard degree. For further details about the content you’ll study following the foundation year, visit our Fashion Photography BA (Hons) page.

If, at the end of your foundation year, you decide that you’d like to change your specialism to a different discipline at The Cass, there will be flexibility to allow you to do this.
