Above: The first day of Freshers week is the beginning of our new academic year and we always mark it by welcoming back recent graduates and current year two and three students to share their knowledge and experience with our new students.
News in from 2016 graduate Emma Boyns.
“I’ve been BBC Good Food’s House Photographer for about six weeks now, and I’m thoroughly enjoying the day-to-day tasks that await me each morning and the challenges that are helping me grow both creatively and professionally. I’ve been shooting both in the test kitchen and the studio, creating images for the magazine, website and the brand’s social media platforms. I’m loving working with such a committed team and such supportive, talented people and it’s both bazaar and amazing to think that I’m contributing to Britain’s biggest-selling food magazine; a brand that I’ve always used and, even six months ago, couldn’t imagine my work being featured in”.
“I’m looking forward to putting my all into the internship over the next few months and creating some work I’m really proud of and contacts that will prove valuable to me in the future”.

It has just been a few weeks since our third year students handed in their final work for marking but they are all ready securing themselves exciting jobs and work experience.
We just received this email from 2017 graduate Katy Layton.
“A few weeks ago, I went for an interview for the position (over 150 people applied for the role) of editorial and digital assistant at Homes & Antiques magazine. As a result, I was offered the position and I have just completed my first full week in my new job. I am loving every moment of working with the magazine and alongside the fantastic team. I am constantly learning something new and I am looking forward to seeing where this opportunity can take me in the future. I have taken the first step into my dream career and it all started from completing a work experience with the magazine as part of the professional practice module in my second year!”
We would also like to congratulate Holly Davis on securing a post-production role within the Superdry team in Cheltenham, Shannon Dudley on securing a production role within a company in Oxford, Carly Tyrell who is currently on a European Tour with US band Linkin Park and Reece Pickering who assisted the photographer Gavin Bond photographing Liam Gallagher last week.
We will keep you informed of all the 2017 graduates success over the coming weeks.
Each year first and second year students studying in universities across England are questioned as to how satisfied they are with the course they are studying on. These are known as the ACE results and are released at this time each year. We are proud, pleased and excited to announce that this year we have received a score of 100% satisfaction from our students.
A big thank you to all of the students who responded to the survey and to the lecturers who help to make the course what it is!
These are just a selection of some of the fantastic images that were created across Vancouver by teams of our students collaborating with students from Van Arts, Vancouver to a live brief set by the Canadian credit union Van City. Teams were created and each was sent to a different Van City branch to meet with the branch manager and learn about the diverse local communities and projects each different branch services and supports. Each team then set off to document those communities in just one day, whilst ensuring that they received permission and model releases for everyone they photographed. The work created will appear in Van City branches and on their social media channels.
