Photography A Level
A Level pathways are designed to prepare you for higher education and beyond. This is an adventurous and open programme of study that promotes personal exploration, experimentation and opportunities for productive personal expression. You are given exploratory experience of working within different processes and disciplines (film and digital).
Photography A Level is designed to enable you to explore both traditional and digital photography, you will learn both the technical and creative skills used in photography, whist also exploring other photographers work and the uses of contemporary lens based image making.
Photography will make up one part of your study programme alongside tutorials and work experience.
Due to the current COVID-19 situation and with health and safety of our students as a priority, we have redesigned this course to include a mixture of classroom-based and online learning.
