Course detail

The course will also enhance your knowledge and skills in the areas of higher research and academic writing through the undertaking of a substantial project on a lens-based subject of interest, and will increase your employability through studies in marketing and promotion and other key business skills.

 

You will be based at our Loxton Campus, which has been purpose-built for creative arts students. You will have ample access to camera, lighting and sound equipment at no extra charge, as well as editing suites, professional studios and dark rooms. You will also be able to take advantage of everything on offer in the new University Centre in the Winter Gardens, including a higher education library, extended opening hours and bright and spacious teaching and learning facilities.

The lecturing team’s specialisms cover a range of lens-based areas – documentary and narrative filmmaking, artistic and music photography, and media arts – as well as related disciplines such as design and post-production. They also have hands-on experience of making their own films and exhibiting creative work to the public, and have professional contacts in the still and moving image sectors in Bristol, Cardiff and elsewhere in the South West.

The course also includes guest lectures and specialist workshops delivered by visiting experts and industry specialists.

Students on this course exhibit their practical work at an end of year showcase, and are also encouraged to seek out additional exhibition opportunities and enter their work in regional and national competitions. Students also have the opportunity to shoot on location in the UK and abroad and can attend optional visits to exhibitions and screenings, all at an additional cost.

We would love you to pay us a visit before deciding whether to apply. You can meet the team and have a look around at our next Open Day.

Please contact the course leader Richard Edkins or UCW’s HEART student services team for more information or if you have any questions about the course or studying at UCW.
