Default Graduate School

Hi I just wanted to say a big thankyou to TE as without this website i never would have gotten into graduate school. I have recently been accepted by the University of Bolton and Da Lian University of China to study an MA in Photojournalism Documentary and Travel Photography. I would especially like to thank the members who have inspired and critqued my work over the past couple of years. This website is an incredible tool for learning about photogrpahy. I have gone from a real novice to being accepted into a graduate program. Adam thankyou for this website it's an amazing place.

Cheers
Peter

I'll be attending Da Lian university but i will receive my degree from the University of Bolton. It's a really assignment based course. We are given projects and plan them with out tutors and then go out into the field and report back to the school. I'm really excited as the school has excellent links to the Reuters office in Beijing and also the Asian version of Stern magazine. It should be an exciting year and will certainly beat teaching English! If anyone is interested here is a link to the <a href="http://www.photoma.org"> course

Wonderful to see someone who takes his pix under his arms and tries to do something with them that may change his life. Photography and photographic career start when the screen is black and the sites logged out of, the net is a tool, not an end in itself, IMO.

Best of luck!

Congratulations Peter that's a wonderful achievement. Nothing beats being recognised for something you're passionate about and being given the support and means through this course to really go for it. You're going to have an exciting year ahead of you, that's for sure.

Well done Peter, sounds like a great course. I was looking at doing some kind of MA in the near future (2 years time) in the UK, but this looks a lot better. Maybe I'll copy you and apply myself!
Are you gonna be living on campus or is the school gonna help you find housing?

Will,
I'm not sure as yet I'm hoping to move into a place with some of the other students. Ill let you know how the course goes. I have spoken to one student from last year and he is now working for the Reuters office in Beijing and he spoke really highly of the course and what it taught him.
