Staff Profile

Anthony Lam

I’ve worked with a diverse range of people in my time as a documentary photographer, from people facing challenges such as substance misuse, homelessness, and youth offending, to people coping with physical and learning disabilities. The emphasis with all these projects is to enable and empower participants to create new connections and social meanings through photography, increasing their confidence, self-esteem and creativity. It is that same creative ethic and critical awareness that I strive to instil in our students, combined with a knowledge of the power of the documentary image.”

What are Course Maps and Module Descriptors?

Course Maps

A course map contains a list of the individual study units, called modules, that you study to complete your course. Some modules are compulsory, but you can sometimes choose modules outside your core area of study which interest you.

Module Descriptors

A module is a self contained, individual unit of study. The Module Descriptor provides various details about the module including who the module tutor is, what you will be studying, how you will be assessed and what you will have learned once you have completed the module.
