Hi all

Does anyone know of any good organisation's that do distance learning photography upto degree level? I missed out on doing my photography degree 25 years ago and would like to pursue something, mainly for my own benefit/interest now.

I already have a BTEC OND in art & design from back then which I specialised in photography. also price is a factor being a moderate wage.

Thanks in advance

Hi Hamlin,

You could try the Open College of Arts. With your BTEC you may have a head start.

Good Luck

Thanks Bernard, funny enough among all the basic 'teach yourself photography' courses this is one I came too as well.

Advice much appreciated have e-mailed them

Most universities will allow you to study part time for a degree, enabling you to continue working, it will take you 5 - 6 years to complete the course, unless you can convince them that you could enter at the second year, based on experience, portfolio and age.

Thanks Paul

I work full time and so distance learning is the best option for and cant really doing anything part time as I only have a few hours a week to spare. There is soo much out there to choose from, having looked.

you should try doing the online training courses for lynda.com they have lots of great photography courses although I don't think you can get a degree at the end of it. Personally I think training like this is great.

I taught myself graphic design with courses like this and I now run a successful design business

you can check out my portfolio with examples of my work. www.ryuneo-designs.com

i'm currently learning macro photography and lynda.com has lots of great resources

Thanks for the info, nice website you haveSmile Lynda.com will prove useful to my work colleagues and I will pas that along as I work in education.

Personally I want a qualification which echo's my skills as I never had the chance to progress.

Thanks again Smile
