No formal qualifications are required. Students are required to have basic computer skills. An informal discussion of students existing photographic and computer related skills is held in the first lesson. This helps the tutor to meet individual students' educational needs during the course.
There may be materials you need to help with your studies. You'll either make a one-off payment for these when you enrol, or you'll buy them during the course. Your tutor will talk to you about this at interview or in your first class (if you don't need an interview).
Depending on your course and circumstances, you may be able to get funding to help with materials fees. Please check with us when you come in for interview or enrolment.
