There are excit­ing enrich­ment trips to loca­tions such as Lon­don, Berlin and Paris. Our stu­dents are reg­u­lar win­ners at the annu­al Not­ting­ham Young Cre­ative awards – next year, it could be you! 

Every course enjoys great links with indus­try, so you’ll nev­er be short of oppor­tu­ni­ties to put your learn­ing into prac­tice. You’ll learn your craft in some of the best facil­i­ties, using indus­try stan­dard equip­ment and soft­ware and pho­tog­ra­phy stu­dio spaces.
