It’s not too late, we have places available for October and February start.
Achieve your QQI Accredited Degree in Photographic Media
There’s never been a better time to study and earn a degree to progress your skills and business. You can study full or part-time or build your qualification module by module in bite sized chunks.
Learn with leading expert tutors with a wealth of both industry and teaching experience
The Griffith College Photography department has been delivering courses for nearly twenty years. Amongst the team we have decades of teaching and industry experience to create an engaging and rewarding learning environment.
Small On-campus Practical Classes with the Benefit of Guided Tuition
We deliver practice-based workshops with an action-based approach to teaching and learning so that you can learn by experience. We offer small group and 1:1 tutorials with the opportunity to gain ongoing feedback throughout the course.
Develop Your Skills and Brand in the Visual Media Industry
This course will enable you to develop your professional and presentation skills. Build your brand, website, professional portfolio, initiate a business plan and develop your skills to create long term projects for self-published books and exhibition.
Cross Platform and Video Production
We recognise the need for image makers to have the ability to work across different platforms and progress their skills as the industry progresses. We offer Video Production as an elective in stage III of the programme. Our students won the SMEDIA TV Production of the Year award twice for their documentaries and gained work for their projects. Students learn how to initiate a concept, shoot and edit the piece using Premiere Pro in our editing suits on campus. This is a key skill and extremely rewarding module. Some students study a one-off module to increase their skill set.
Advanced Entry and Stand-Alone Modules
If you already have industry experience or have gained some qualifications previously, we will look at advancing your entry to either stage II or stage III of the course. Applicants seeking advanced entry should provide links to their work, transcripts and anything for consideration in the application process.
The part-time version of the course runs three evenings per week. Sometimes this is not possible to undertake. We offer students the chance to build their degree module by module. In this instance we will help you to choose the modules you might take, perhaps one or two per semester. Each module is accredited and adds up to your final degree. This lends itself to the busy professional who can’t commit to a full year or three-year course up front.
Award Winning Programme
Our courses are industry recognised and multiple award winning. Griffith College photography students have won and been nominated for the most amount of SMEDIA (National Student Media Award) awards nationally. Our students are eligible for the Inspirational Arts Award, RDS Arts Award, Jill Todd Award and the Gallery of Photography Graduate Award.
