The BA(Hons) Photography at UWE Bristol is a broad-based, practice-oriented programme of study that encourages the development of innovative creative practices in still and moving image.

Building from a base of experimental practice, contemporary critical theory and pragmatic real-world experience, our students evolve distinctive, award-winning photographic portfolios that are tailored to their own individual aspirations. Based in the home city of the Martin Parr Foundation and the Royal Photographic Society, the programme draws on an active roster of guest speakers from a range of photographic backgrounds, to maximise the level of external industry currency and feedback to students.

Recent alumni have been recognised through competitions such as BJP Portrait of Britain, Magenta Flash Forward, Magnum Graduate Prize, D&AD, Sony World Photo Awards, Palm Photo Prize and RPS International Photography Award, as well as going on to a diverse range of creative careers such as photographers, picture editors, agents and curators.
