The Photography programme at the University for the Creative Arts will encourage you to be bold, both in your work and the way in which you display it. You will be encouraged to speculate, experiment and add complexity to your projects, using our extensive facilities to help you realise your ideas.


The Photography programme at the University for the Creative Arts focus on the dissemination, exhibition and publication of photographic work, as well as covering critical theory and reading and writing about the image.

With a balance of support that will develop your practical skills and foster a high standard of diverse critical approaches, you will respond to the diverse field of contemporary photography and explore practices of representation that engage with the still and moving image, as well as performance and installation.

Your studies will be supported by a number of internationally renowned staff in a department that encourages experimentation. This will help you to establish yourself as a rounded professional who can formulate ideas in a sophisticated framework, whilst also communicating impactfully with others, both visually and verbally.


We have three fully-equipped, spacious photographic studios and lighting; perfect for still-life, fashion, tableau and other constructed photography; dedicated processing and printing darkrooms for both black and white and colour film-based photography.
