Career opportunities

The Photography and Film (Hons) BA programme offered by Wrexham Glyndwr University has a strong vocational and academic ethos that aim to ensure graduates acquire a range of vocationally relevant skills. Integral to this ethos is the responsibility to ensure that our graduates have a portfolio of abilities and attributes which will allow them to thrive in the 21st Century workplace. It takes into account the fact that the future needs of the creative industries are likely to be very different. It therefore aims to prepare ‘independent learners’ who on completion of their studies are able to flourish within increasingly diverse professional contexts.
