Very high past pass rate with a high grade A to C grade proportion. 3. Lecturers with many years experience in the photographic industries. 4. Ideal course for hard working students, but also a lot of fun!! 5. Friendly and caring environment in which to study. What will I Study? The course starts with lots of 'how to' ... how to understand and use your camera functions and settings, how to analyse an image, how to write-up your sketchbook, how to compose an image, how to develop a film, how to make an enlargement and so on. As the course develops you will work on specific project themes. For example, in 2013 the themes included: The Self Portrait, Urban Landscape and Low Light Photography. In these projects you will be encouraged to develop your own creative skills, producing outcomes which are both original and personal to you. During the latter part of the course you will spend 8 weeks working on a theme set by the exam board (Edexcel) to produce an artistic personal response. You will record all your work: research, thoughts, ideas, plans, contact sheets, enlargements and evaluations in an A4 size art sketchbook. How will I be Taught? The course is taught through a mixture of lectures, practical work and personal research & experimentation. Each week you will have a lesson in the Image Centre where most of the practical skills are taught and a lesson in a computer suite where theory and digital topics are taught. Handouts are often given and lesson resources uploaded onto the college moodle site. You are required to carry out research and practical assignments in your own time (minimum of 5 hours per week) How will I be Assessed? The course is 100% coursework assessed - your sketchbooks and a final project exhibition piece. What our students say? "I found the course tough, but really enjoyable". "I always enjoyed taking pictures and was surprised to find out just how much you have to learn on this course, but in the end it was worth it". "I have been accepted to study for a photography degree at University and am really excited"
