Program overview

You will experience a wide variety of approaches to photography, in contexts such as editorial, illustration, bookwork and exhibition practices. You will also get the opportunity to collaborate, both within the programme, and with other areas through Plymouth. The second year allows you to grow as a photographer, developing your image making whilst considering the context in which your work will sit. Your projects can be linked throughout your second year, with the relationship between history, theory and practice being developed all the time. Collaborative-practice continues in year 2, both in the studio, with the unique Group Set Construction Project, and in your individual practice. You will also have the opportunity to study abroad, in countries such Germany, Romania, Sweden, Cyprus, Slovenia, France, Slovakia, Norway, New Zealand and the USA. In the third year you will undertake a unique and ambitious individual programme of work, preparing you for your future career. The written dissertation will focus and consolidate your intellectual and imaginative research skills in a self initiated piece of writing. A programme of seminars, complemented by visits from graduates and professionals, will help you to consider, and realise your ambitions for life beyond university. Your third year practice will be developed into significant bodies of work that will help to introduce you to a diverse audience.
