Edinburgh Napier University is delighted to host a reunion of alumni, to celebrate more than 35 years of its Photography and Film programmes.
Photography has a long history at Edinburgh Napier that parallels the development and progress of the institution. From the City & Guilds qualifications offered in 1964 when it was simply Napier Technical College, to the Napier College of Science and Technology years, from 1974 to 1988, when it offered ONC and HND qualifications. We first offered degrees in 1984 and the college became a Polytechnic in 1988. A further Honours year was added in 1992 when Edinburgh Napier became a University, and our first cohort graduated in 1994.

Like the institution itself, Photography and Film has gone from strength to strength. Since the late 80’s it has benefitted from a truly international reputation, welcoming students from all over the world.

Inevitably the last 35 years have seen several developments in the teaching of Photography and Film at Edinburgh Napier. Higher education in the Arts and Creative Industries cannot remain static; it must move with the demands and expectations of contemporary practice. The next stage of development for our programme is its division into two distinct, specialist programmes – BA (Hons) Film and BA (Hons) Photography.
