Please note! Course description is confirmed for two academic years, which means that in general, e.g. Learning outcomes, assessment methods and key content stays unchanged. However, via course syllabus, it is possible to specify or change the course execution in each realization of the course, such as how the contact sessions are organized, assessment methods weighted or materials used.


Each clinic deepens and strengthens the students' personal approach, visual thinking and technical skills building up students' personal knowledge on certain areas of photographic techniques, e.g. analogue processes and lab work, image post-production, studio, lightning, video, editing and digital printing.

1-3 cliniques will be offered per year and the topics arise from current technical development and changes in the equipment. Students may choose  clinics based on their personal demands.

On a successful completion of each clinic, students

  • have built up their previous knowledge of particular techniques, tools and materials
  • are able to apply new techniques to their work
  • are capable of applying learned new skills and practices to their own personal work
  • can specify the separate sectors that are needed for the pursued outcome
  • can explain and reason the varied steps of making that lead to particular results
  • are able to work on one's own initiative
  • hold knowledge where and how to find additional information when necessary

The learning outcomes vary and are related to each workshop and they will be described in detail in the course description of each study event.
