You'll be taught through a combination of lectures, seminars and practical workshops.
Practical workshops will teach you the skills and technical knowledge you'll need to produce your coursework. Lectures will give you a firm grounding in the theoretical aspects of photography and will help you to develop your critical understanding of photographic practices. Seminars in smaller groups will enable you to discuss and develop your understanding of topics covered in lectures and enable you to express your ideas, observations and experiences in a supportive academic environment. In addition to these three learning approaches, you'll present your work regularly during critiques, where academic staff and your peers will help you to develop your work and improve the quality of the course work you produce.
You'll also meet with your academic personal tutor to get personal support on your academic journey.
During all the practical workshops, you'll be introduced to specialist facilities and after this initial introduction you'll have access to these throughout your course.
You'll typically have around 12 contact hours per week, but your actual contact hours depend on the optional modules you select.
