Regent’s University London and Spéos Paris photography school have launched an exciting new MA Photography course together, giving students the chance to study on the campuses of Regent’s and Spéos London, and attend study trips to Paris and Burgundy. 

Intended for those with 2 or 3 years’ photography experience, the new MA will start in September 2022 – offering students insights into how to become innovative and entrepreneurial photography professionals, able to apply their creative and technical skills in commercial contexts.

Students will learn from academics, photographers, production experts and prominent industry leaders to ensure their classes are shaped by the most current, creative industry practices. They’ll join guest lectures and practical workshops to build their portfolio and collaborate with international industry players to expand their professional network.

They can also take part in study trips to Spéos Paris and Nicéphore Niépce House Museum in Burgundy (owned by Spéos), where photography was invented.  

Graduates will be awarded an MA in Photography by Regent’s University London – in collaboration with Spéos Paris.
