This exciting practical and professional programme will enable you to explore photographic practice through the development of appropriate skills and the creation of original artwork using both traditional processes and digital technology. The programme aims to encourage creative decision making and critical thinking in preparation for future careers in the photographic industries. Photographic practice is continually changing, the programme adapts to these changes and the possibilities they hold and focuses on building the professional, technical, creative and intellectual skills needed for you to be successful in your chosen field. Key elements and exciting opportunities include local and international trips and residential visits, close relationships with local art organisations providing opportunities to regularly exhibit work, an integrated visiting lecturer programme and a broad range of experience working on both internally and externally set professional assignments and briefs.

On successful completion of the programme you will be able to progress on to the final year of the Photography Bachelor of Arts Honours Degree (BA Hons) at Plymouth University, apply for a place at another
university of your choice or follow your chosen career path through the photographic industries.
You could go on to careers such as: Freelance Photographic Practice, Photojournalism, Press and Editorial, Advertising, Event & Product Photography, Exhibiting, Curating, Teaching, Research or Postgraduate Study.

Assessment methods

The programme is modular and coursework based. Work will be assessed at key points during the year. A significant part of your time will be spent in the studios, photographic and digital workshops and lecture rooms. Practical teaching is underpinned by an integrated lecture series, tutorial programme and a high level of pastoral support. You will produce an essay and give an oral presentation of your research in the first and second year as part of the critical studies element.

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?
