Entry Requirements

Normally an Honours degree in a related subject is required. However, if you have solid professional industry experience rather than academic achievement, this may be acceptable for entry to study at this level through a process called Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL).

Please provide evidence of a website/digital portfolio with your application. We are looking for an engagement with documentary photography or photojournalism with a particular focus on series rather than individual photographs. You may then be asked to attend an interview supported by a portfolio.
