Course Detail

Photography Diploma Level 2

Full time course

Course Summary

SGS has been running the highly acclaimed Level 3 Extended Diploma in Photography for many years and we've now decided to introduce the Level 2 Diploma in Photography in 2017, enabling students to learn how to progress onto this advanced standard.

SGS is one of the few colleges in the region to have an extremely well-equipped darkroom, advanced digital facilities and a professional photographic studio.

You will need to have a portfolio of work to present at interview and show passion, enthusiasm and commitment.

We have highly-skilled, passionate and practicing photographers who will guide you in your practical work and studies enabling you to prepare a strong portfolio of work. Crucial to this course, and for your broadening experience, are group photography trips to various locations.

What are your career options?

Most photographers are freelance. You could also get a permanent job with an advertising or PR agency, a newspaper, a hospital or the police.

You will study photography within the School of Art, here at Stroud and be surrounded by other creative people. You and your ideas are important to us, so we hope you take this opportunity to come and study with us.
