Do you see the world differently? Our MA Photography course promotes innovation and experimentation, supporting you to develop your own distinctive creative vision as a photographic practitioner.

The course examines strategies to resolve projects into substantial outputs such as publications, exhibitions and digital platforms, and emphasises the need to find an audience as being integral to a sustained and successful practice.

Through a research-based investigation using photographic practices, you’ll consider the cultural and ethical uses of the medium within a range of genres and approaches. You will develop skills for analysis and critical evaluation, as well as professional know-how to engage with the wider photographic community and industry.

You’ll be able to attend talks by a diverse range of international visiting speakers, with recent guests including Joy Gregory, Mariela Sancari, Amani Willett, Bolade Banjo, Cécile Poimboeuf-Koizumi and Amak Mahmoodian.
