With a number of events, projects and activities planned to celebrate the long-standing reputation of this discipline at the institution, the university is proud to acknowledge the past, present and future of Photography at the University through this landmark year of celebrations.

The University of South Wales, is one of the leading providers of photographic education in the UK and the photography department enjoys an excellent reputation both nationally and internationally. The portfolio of Photography programmes includes BA (Hons) Documentary Photography and BA (Hons) Photography at Undergraduate level and MA Documentary Photography at Postgraduate level.

Our photography students benefit from the excellent photographic facilities on offer and course delivery by leading practitioners within the subject area. Our students are the recipients of some of the most prestigious awards in photography including: The Getty Images Project Grant, places on the Eddie Adams workshop in New York, a fellowship with Fabrica/ Colours Magazine, internships with Newsweek magazine and The Ian Parry, Sunday Times award –as well as the Observer David Hodge Award.

Graduates from our Photography courses have gone on to be professionally immersed in photography and publishing and many graduates now work at the highest levels of the industry. The celebration of the 100 Years of Photography culminated in a special Alumni Exhibition held at the University’s Newport City Campus. This exhibition saw some of the many successful photographers to emerge from courses at the University come together to demonstrate the significant influence the institution has had on the world of photography.
