Photographic education at the University of Westminster has a unique depth of tradition. The world’s first courses in photographic chemistry were delivered at the Regent Street Campus in the 19th century, and the first degree in photography was delivered in 1980’s at what was then the Polytechnic of Central London.

Photography teaching is delivered on one of the finest and most fully equipped facilities in the country. The Photography Centre offers five large, professionally equipped studios and industry-standard post-production facilities, a selection of digital and analogue cameras in a wide range of formats and much more.

In addition, there are well-equipped laboratories for image analysis, sensitometry, colour evaluation and colour profiling and image management.

Alongside all of these facilities, our highly experienced technical staff are there to provide you with expert advice and support. Whether your question concerns photographic chemistry or the latest digital post-production techniques, one of the technicians will be able to answer it, usually in far greater detail than you expected.

The School of Media, Arts and Design has one of the most varied portfolios in Europe. Surrounded by artists, producers, journalists, designers and musicians, all intent on producing their work to the highest possible standards, you will have the chance to collaborate with colleagues in group projects and team work.
