Hey guys, I just wanted some advice so please be nice! Basically, I'm still kinda stuck between whether to go to university (mainly because there aren't many options around where I live for apprenticeships, etc) and which subject to study; fashion design or photography. I'm leaning toward photography more but there's still that niggling part of me that wonders if fashion would be better. I'm aiming to complete my UCAS application soon but I still can't decide. One uni has said they'd allow me to send two applications both for fashion and photography so there's that I guess. Any tips if you've been there, etc, would be amazing. Thanks!

You dont need to go to uni to study photography, if this is what u want to do then there will be a course somewhere near you, and then you need to build a portfolio.

dont listen to the person above. studying photography at a university can be really beneficial and can give you a head start in the industry compared to people who are self taught due to connections the university may have. you'd also have access to a lot of equipment you wouldnt have access to otherwise because its so expensive and are then able to learn a lot of different types of practices of photography and you'll be much more employable then people who only know how to shoot digitally. maybe do a fashion photography course if you still want to be in both the fashion and photography industry? either way if you're looking into any type of photography course i'd give falmouth university a look. or look at the university for any art or design course in general.
