This innovative online programme uses collaborative and dialogical technology to make our award-winning MFA accessible for photographers working outside of Ireland. The course brings together practising photographers from Europe, North America and Asia to develop new approaches to contemporary photographic practice. Online seminars and critiques are complemented by annual master classes on three continents.

We have been profiled by the British Journal of Photography as one of the most significant photography schools in Europe. Our graduates work internationally between the book, gallery, web and magazine, continually challenging photography's place within contemporary society and the way we photograph now.

The teaching team consists of practising photographers, artists and theorists who exhibit and publish internationally. These include members of the prestigious Magnum photo agency, Martin Parr and Donovan Wylie, Northern Irish artists Professors Wilie Doherty and Paul Seawright, Dr KayLynn Deveney, Ken Grant, Clare Gallagher, Ailbhe Greaney and Haley Morris-Cafiero. The course is complemented by international guest lectures by leading photographers, historians, curators and writers. Close links with photographic galleries and photography festivals will help you to build networks and professional practice.
