Documentary Photography

The course provides the opportunity for students as independent practitioners to develop a body of work in a supportive and questioning environment; students are encouraged to develop their own project or projects alongside an understanding of how their photography works in the wider world.

Entry requirements

Normally an Honours degree in a related subject is required. If you have solid professional industry experience rather than academic achievement, this may be acceptable for entry to study at this level through a process called accreditation of prior experiential learning (APEL). Where English is not your 1st language, applicants are required to provide evidence of proficiency in English language at IELTS level 6.5 or equivalent, with no lower than 5.5 in any one component.

Assessment methods

Initially you will be assessed through the production of experimental work-in progress, with fully resolved work expected in later modules. Alongside your work you will be asked to develop a perspective through written texts placing your work in its photographic and social context.
