Higher National Certificate Photography

Higher National Certificate (HNC) Photography provides a broad introduction to a wide range of photographic practices. The course is intensive and offers an overview into professional practice, editorial and fine art photography. The HNC can be used as a stepping stone to place you in a very strong position when applying for undergraduate or even post graduate studies at a later date.

Commitment to study at the college is for two days a week for 30 weeks in the academic year. Over the year you will build on your knowledge by studying a number of different course units. Some units are more theoretical and will contextualise different photographic approaches against a background of historical and political relevance. Other units explore more practical aspects of photography such as studio lighting, digital postproduction and analogue photography. The broad variety of units will allow you to discover and explore the area of photography you are particularly passionate about. The HNC team will provide the support and career guidance to enable you to pursue that passion professionally.

To do this course you will need to have completed, or have knowledge equivalent to our level 3 BTEC Diploma in Photography. The HNC requires a lot of self-motivation as you will need the determination to work independently. The course is supported by a well-equipped studio, black and white darkroom and digital facilities. It is taught by a strong team of experienced tutors and professional photographers who will offer a creative environment for you to develop your photographic futures.
