What you will study The course is made up of 18 units - five core units then a range of specialist units that Wakefield College have selected to give you the best possible basis on which to develop a photographic career. These specialist units enable you to study particular aspects of photography in greater depth.

You will need a GCSE at grade A*-C in these subjects. Skills in Maths and English will support your full-time course, assisting you with assignment writing, research, job applications, presentations, managing your own finances and interpretation of data, to mention just a few. They will also help you in the future. Most employers are looking for ability in these areas and the majority of university courses require you to have Maths and English GCSEs at A*-C.
