Media & Photography

Develop your artistic, analytical and technical abilities in a wide range of mediums. From photography and film to web design, our media courses encourage creativity through theory and practice.

Technical creativity

Through your photographic work and real world media production briefs, you’ll put together an impressive portfolio of work. With access to darkrooms, digital software and state-of-the-art computer suites, your technical abilities in creative production will flourish.

Critical theory

As a student of the media and photography department, you’ll also learn to deconstruct and interpret a wide range of mediums. Theoretical study and analysis will develop your critical understanding of media, teaching you to identify the structures and subtexts that underlie media messages.

Opportunities

Whether you’re a film studies student or a photographer, we offer exciting travel opportunities around the world. Previous field trip destinations include London, Rome and New York City. Through our Apprenticeship programme, you can land a real working role in Creative and Digital Media, learning in a professional environment while earning a wage and gaining a qualification.

Courses for adults

If you’re looking to learn or improve your photography skills, we offer part-time courses and workshops here at the College. Discover the traditional techniques of darkroom developing, or learn the basics of digital photography.
