Course overviewPhotography City of Bristol College
This course is part of a two-year, full-time A Level programme of three different subjects. If you’re a school leaver and interested in photography or the creative sector this course is an ideal stepping stone towards achieving your ambition. This course starts with an eight week introduction into basic camera settings and techniques. During the course, students study a range of photographers relevant to their chosen theme.
Who is it for?
This full-time course will enable you to work independently and learn how to be experimental. You will learn a range of skills and techniques but also to be able to problem solve and think outside of the box. You are encouraged at all times to be creative with your thought process and to come up with concepts and ideas that you can respond to and develop.
What you'll learn
You will learn a range of photography techniques and disciplines and have the opportunity to go on at least two trips to London each year and a foreign study trip i.e. Amsterdam and Vienna. At the end of the second year, you will take part in organising and exhibiting your own work in a gallery style environment for your friends and family.
For entry onto this programme, you will require 6 GCSEs at grade 4 (C) or above, English and Maths grade 4 and above and a GCSE in a creative subject.
How is the course delivered and assessed?
You will be assessed throughout the duration of the course via a combination of coursework, practical work, observation and presentations.
Future career and study opportunities
Following successful completion of the programme, next steps could be an Art Foundation, Art/Photography Degrees, Creative apprenticeships or build a creative portfolio for future interviews in the creative sector.
This course is free to anyone aged 16-18. There is no formal list of additional costs. However, if you are on a limited income, you may be eligible to receive help with these costs from our Learner Support Funding Bursary.
