10 benefits of studying the first year at Carmel:

  1. All students can look forward to a supportive environment where you are challenged to achieve the very best you are capable of.
  2. It is a small provision; this means more tutor time to help you develop as a photographer.
  3. We have an enviable record of ex-Carmel students securing jobs in the Creative Industries.
  4. We deliver a quality provision and the student is at the heart of what we do. We were inspected in 2009 and 2014 by QAA.
  5. Photography graduates could go on to be exhibiting photographers, lecturers, art directors, conservators, arts administrators, digital artists, picture researchers, studio managers or even running their own practice.
  6. The Arts at Carmel are performing brilliantly at all levels, which means you are part of a thriving and energetic faculty across all the art disciplines.
  7. Carmel offers fantastic purpose-built facilities in our Centre for Art & Design.
  8. The course is available at reduced fees of £6000
  9. Smooth transition into year two at the University of Salford.
