How will you be assessed?
Assessment is via examination and coursework.
Naturally, many of our students studying A Level Photography do so because they wish to pursue a career in the field. There are many aspects of Photography you could consider such as Fashion, Product, Documentary or Post-production Photography – or even running your own studio. You may also wish to progress on to a Photography or an Art and Design based degree.
This is a highly valued qualification that can also support a wide range of careers where photographic skills are an asset such as Journalism or Marketing. A Level Photography students have recently progressed to university to study subjects such as:
• Graphic Design
