Sheffield College launches new look press photography course

By Myriam Dijck

Sheffield College has launched a new look press photography course that has been scaled down from 36 to 24 weeks.

The college said it wanted to make the course more more compact and financially attractive for students.

The £2,400 pre-entry course covers photojournalism, media law, photographic knowledge and practice, news and caption writing, and includes trips to high-profile events.

 

The course is accredited by the National Council for the Training of Journalists and includes 400 contact teaching hours – 55 hours less than last year – and runs from September to April.
