|Degree:||Bachelor of Arts (Honours) (BA (Hons))|
This programme is designed to help you develop the confidence and skills to operate in a higher level job, or profession, where you can make decisions, solve problems and be in control of creative output. It is also aimed at those who would like to start their own business or develop their own individual area of practice through a more in-depth study of photography. The qualification is taught at West Kent College's University Centre in Tonbridge but is awarded and quality assured by the University of Kent.
Although this programme offers a natural progression route from the HND in Photography at West Kent College, we also welcome and encourage applications from students who have achieved a HND or foundation degree in photography or a related subject at another college or university. It will enable you to convert your Level 5 HND or Foundation Degree qualification into a Level 6 Bachelor's degree with this one year programme.
The programme supports the use of a wide range of photographic, lens-based, techniques and approaches to produce creative imagery and you will be encouraged to develop professional practice to a very high standard in your chosen area.
The programme has a strong emphasis on individual and professional development and you will be encouraged to achieve a high standard in all areas and supported to make work of high conceptual and technical quality.
The teaching team are qualified and experienced in a range of theoretical, conceptual and practical aspects of the subject to facilitate and support individual student projects. You will be offered one-to-one tutorial support on a regular basis, and support from a technician and the Learning Resource Centre is available during self-directed study.
The College’s location near the mainline train station in Tonbridge facilitates trips to and from London.
