Comments about MA Photography - At the institution - Nottingham - Nottinghamshire

  • Objectives
    MA Photography has been designed to give students the opportunity to develop a creative photographic practice and career by enhancing their skills and increasing their knowledge. The course explores the changing nature of contemporary photographic images and practices. It is particularly suitable for those who use photography as documentary, in an art practice, for fashion, etc. The course also supports study in areas of photographic practice that are historically associated with other European countries, such as constructed or imaginative photography.
  • Entry requirements
    Entry requirements Prospective applicants should be (or about to become) graduates of a British university or equivalent institute of Higher Education. Preference will be given to good honours graduates although exceptional applicants from a non-academic background will also be considered. If applying for a design specialisation, you are also required to show a professional portfolio of work. You will need a good honours degree (2.2 minimum) in a relevant art and design subject or relevant experience, supported by a suitable portfolio of work or evidence of publication. Applications will be considered from non-art and design related subject areas. Competence in written and spoken English is essential. Overseas applicants are expected to have a score of either IELTS 6, TOEFL 540, CBTOEFL 207 or IBTOEFL 76 unless their undergraduate course of study was undertaken in English. There is an opportunity for overseas students to enrol on the ten week Language and Culture Bridging course at the end of June, providing they have secured a place on an MA course the following September. This will allow for a higher score to be achieved and for students to have art and design specialist tutorials in preparation for Masters study.

Students can work with other MA study programmes, such as Graphic Design, Fashion or Fine Art, when it benefits their individual projects.

    How do you study?
