The Level 2 UAL Diploma in Film & Photography has been designed as an introductory programme that will help you to develop practical skills in film-making and photography. You will develop your research skills, your personal confidence, and learn about progression opportunities in the photographic and film industries.
You will have the opportunity to try a wide range of traditional film and digital photography skills and you will work with video to learn about documentary film-making. You will have access to a photography studio and darkrooms to try out a range of experiments with photography and printing.
Themed projects will help you understand art and design more broadly and enable you to make work which expresses your own ideas as part of the creative process. You will have opportunities to improve communication and presentation skills through group activities and student exhibitions.
Assessment is through on-going continuous assessment of unit work leading to a final major project achieved at Pass Merit or Distinction grade. Units are assessed against the course unit grading criteria and all GC's must be achieved in order to pass each unit.

Generally, you will only get student finance if you’re doing your first degree-level qualification. This is true even if your previous course was self-funded.
