The first year delivers an intense programme which builds your skills across a range of areas. This combines the traditional values of professional practice – such as fine printing, studio management and critical analysis – with the modern necessity of full digital workflow.

In the second year, you will select units to suit your individual skills and interests, with a key element of the second year programme being the specialist practice module. You are able to consolidate skills built from year one to support a specific interest or pathway in photography such as documentary photography, commercial photography, digital photography, analogue photography or any other proposal that meets the module criteria.

At the end of the course, you will have a comprehensive portfolio of printed work alongside a digital platform representing their work, such as a web page or blog. It is expected that you will have participated in an off-site exhibition and will have designed and self-published at least two books. All of the projects are underpinned by an element of critical research and analysis.

For every 10 credits, students should engage with around 100 notional hours of learning. This will be approximately 30% direct learning contact, 70% independent student learning.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
