The course is designed to be self-paced. Normally you would expect to be dedicating on average about 4-6 hours per week for 24 weeks. However, many students take up to one year to complete their studies because of family or work commitments.
Your tutor's role is to assess your assignments and provide you with personalised feedback. They are also available to answer any questions you may have about the course. You can communicate with your personal tutor at any time through your secure student site, which you will be given access to once you enrol.
The course is completed online. This means there are no classes to attend. You can study in your own time and at your own pace.
No. The course is designed to allow for students who have had little or no experience in photography.
All you need for your professional photography course is a camera. A digital SLR or mirrorless is best; but certainly not essential.
We also recommend a recent version of Adobe Photoshop. However, you may use other photo editing programs.
As the course is provided online, you have the flexibility to start when and where suits you. If you enrolled today, for example, you could start straight away.
