With around 30,000 students and 3,000 academic staff, UWE is the larger of the two universities in Bristol, with its photography course being offered out of the Bower Ashton campus.

This popular undergraduate course offers the opportunity to develop a creative photographic practice from a broad-based programme of activity, through to a specific and identifiable visual style. At its core is the development of strong creative project ideas in both still and moving imagery. The course embraces a holistic attitude to photography, so photographers can follow their developing aspirations in any number of fields.

The course builds from an experimental induction-focused first year of study, orientated around workshop activities, the expansion of visual/critical vocabulary and on improving technical skills. The second year encourages the students to consider the importance of the creative process and how their work might be situated in the creative industries through elements such as work experience, live project briefs and collaborations with professional and academic partners.

Students are given the opportunity to take part in exchange/placement programmes in cities such as Barcelona, Berlin, Bologna, Rotterdam, Delhi and Hong Kong.
