Course overview

The photography course is a specialist pathway of the UAL Level 3 Applied General Art & Design Diploma and Extended Diploma. Working with our tutors, all experienced industry practitioners, you will be able to extend your skills in digital and traditional photography including darkroom and the use of photo-editing software to help you create a professional portfolio.

What you'll study

The course will enable you to develop your creative and technical skills in photography, including the use of specialist equipment, industry standard photo-studio lighting, lenses, camera controls and set-ups. This will be achieved through a series of themed projects, which are open to your creative interpretation and approach.

Assessment

In the first year you will complete a number of projects and receive verbal and written feedback on these. This will prepare you for final major project, which is externally assessed by UAL. It is similar in the second year of the course, the Extended Diploma, although in this case final major project is assessed by your tutors and externally moderated by UAL.

Entry requirements

Four GCSEs at grade 4 or C including English, Maths, and an art or design subject. A small portfolio of photography related work can be used instead of, or as well as, the art and design GCSE.

Work experience

There will be opportunities to work on live briefs with real life clients. Students will be encouraged and supported to make industry links.

Next steps

This course is ideally suited for progression to photography, visual arts or specialist photography courses (such as fashion or editorial) at degree level.
