The aim of this course is to enhance the creative, critical and professional skills of practitioners who are at an early stage in their careers, as well as to give those who have already established themselves within the professional arena an opportunity to interrogate their practice and deepen the quality and sophistication of their creative output.
It is designed to accommodate a broad range of practitioners, from those who use photography to question the world around them to those whose practice interrogates the medium itself. Typical applicants may be working as photojournalists, critics in photography, curators, freelancers, or business or studio owners.
You will need to complete four 30-credit modules and one 60-credit project (180 credits in total). All modules on the course are compulsory and must be passed in order to complete the award.

You may choose to:
- Study entirely online without attending any face-to-face workshops
- Study online and attend optional residential workshops, held biannually at various locations such as the UK, USA, Asia or the Middle East.
A typical workshop will start on Friday and end on Monday. The exact days, length and format will vary according to the event but will be set in order to be of most value to you. We will inform you well in advance, giving you as much time as possible to arrange your travel and accommodation. Attendance is strongly encouraged although not compulsory.

- Submit a digital portfolio of your current photographic practice. The portfolio should indicate both your technical aptitude and the quality and sophistication of your practice.
