I've been looking around for unis to apply to for 21/22 and am really struggling with where would be the best place to go. I initially wanted to go to somewhere in London as I thought that would offer me the best opportunities, especially being a photography student. But, after reading reviews I'm really stuck, so if there's anyone studying photography at uni and could offer insight into where I should avoid and what would be a good place to go, that'd be great.

Sorry, I’m not an expert - but I did apply unsuccessfully to Edinburgh Napier

Look for somewhere ‘special’ where details of what & how they teach connect to your own interests in Photography. Also consider that “a photographer” might be harder to market than a similar, but broader skill?

I do think you still need the advice of “where to avoid”, where I ended up, was bored to death - prob not their faults - so now off to do Art

Didn't study photography at uni, but worked as a press photographer part time (up until Covid) and a few of the other photographers I knew went either to the London College of Communication in London or Falmouth University in Cornwall.

They did a mixture of theory and practical which allowed them to develop a style suited to them such as reportage or documentary. If you want to stay in London, I'd recommend looking at the University of the Arts and applying to the London College of Communication as it does hold a good reputation nonetheless.
