Klara Ferm - BA (Hons) Photography
"My time at Arts University Plymouth was three years of exploring myself and my photography without restrictions. With the help of great tutors I learnt new things about myself as a person and as an artist, I learnt about new art forms and artists, and I learnt about the importance of being proud of my work."
Hoa Nguyen-Thi - BA (Hons) Photography
"Arts University Plymouth can be proud of the richness of lectures regarding serious subjects and issues, or presentations with interesting people varying from the successful graduates (Nicholas JR. White) to famous photographers (Suki Dhanda or Aaron Schuman). I had the chance to develop myself on a whole level as a person as well as an artist with an individual mindset. I managed to gain the confidence that I now am very glad for."
Josh Huxham - BA (Hons) Photography
"Since beginning the course, I have been encouraged to explore more than just the photographic medium. Experimentation with paint, stitch, collage and more has been present in my work for some time. With the help of my fellow students, I’ve also been able to view my work as an outsider in order to refine it into something that is conceptual and thoughtful. I’ve resisted the comfort of following trends and instead continued to develop my own style in order to stand out. Having the opportunity to collaborate across different disciplines, from fashion to illustration, has definitely allowed me to be open-minded about approaching other creatives to collaborate and develop projects together."
Anne Moore - BA (Hons) Photography
"As a student, I was constantly reminded of the value of research, and that grounding has prepared me for study at Masters level. Coming from a non-academic background, I believe that the dedication of my tutors and the availability of regular feedback with encouragement has allowed me to blossom and fulfil my dreams of becoming an academician in my own right."
