The calibre of the staff allows the students to access their varied experiences, interests and skills" said Yvonne, and she also praised the course for being "artistically and intellectually stimulating."
Sunderland has something for everyone and everyone can find their own comfortable niche. I think there are advantages in Sunderland being a smaller city, it is friendly and unpretentious.
The MA course encourages the student into thinking in a much different way about the work they produce - giving a deeper intellectual and theoretical substance for the work based on a sound knowledge of photographic theory.
This, coupled with the prospect of developing a bigger network of contacts and associates is the perfect medium for motivated students to develop their practice after graduation.
My advice to student is take full advantage of easy access to fantastic facilities including the huge library and inter-library loans.
Exploit the resources of experienced staff whose skills are varied and who educate in a way that develops in the student a new, more productive, confident way of thinking allowing individual artistic and academic skills to grow."
