Discover your own creative practice in photography through UCEN Manchester and Open Eye Gallery.

We are delighted to be presenting a degree with UCEN Manchester in Photography and Social Practice. Graduates will be awarded a Bachelor of Arts with Honors, and gain invaluable experience of the arts sector and industry photographic practice.

Study with Open Eye Gallery and UCEN Manchester

Photography is now arguably the most important visual media – everyday billions share their lives using it on social media. The speed at which it moves keeps pace with changes in all parts of our lives and society, and it is able to reflect those developments in a way that is unique to photography.

This useful and innovative course will nurture the skills, creativity, knowledge and ideas necessary to prepare you for a broad range of photography careers. You will be encouraged to think critically, take risks and explore your creative potential, with opportunities to experiment with analogue and digital photography, moving image, text or sound.

You will receive creative opportunities fronted by us at Open Eye Gallery, one of the leading photographic institutes in the country. Our cutting-edge approach will engage you artistically to explore opportunities within community, education and public gallery sectors. Curators, educators and programmers at Open Eye Gallery will input throughout the course with a strong focus on your personal and professional development.  These interactions will connect you to the sector during your degree, giving you a head start in networking, working in a professional context and capacity, and gaining first-hand experience of the art sector.

Course aims

  • To provide curricula, informed by external reference points, which develop a range of technical, professional, vocational, employability transferable and key skills.

 

  • To facilitate a quality learning experience, that fosters engagement with their programme of study and promotes independent study and life–long learning.
