More about Rasha
What made you choose to study at NTU?
“The opportunities that were offered within my chosen course, such as travelling and exploring different areas of Photography.”
What do you enjoy most about your course?
"I enjoy meeting people who share a similar passion and talking to staff who are amazingly educated and understand what you want to do. The people I’ve met have helped me enjoy the course even more, this being on top of the facilities provided and opportunities given such as the study trip to Berlin."
How does it feel to have your work Selected to exhibit at the New Art Exchange?
To be one of the few selected to showcase at the New Art Exchange is an absolute privilege. Having a section of my wider work exhibited in such a prestigious gallery is very exciting, and I thank the course for all of the opportunities it has provided us with."
Has the course included any guest lectures?
“We heard from guest lectures every other week during my first year and now we currently have one every month. One lecture that has particularly stood out for me was given by Tim Clark, the Editor in Chief for 1000 Words magazine. He spoke of his journey and development in his career after university, how he got to where he is, and encouraged us to get out there and not be afraid to try to get or do what we really want.”
How do you find the facilities?
“The studios, dark rooms and Mac suites are all incredibly equipped; NTU is one of a few universities that provides colour enlargers which have been a great experience to use. We have workshops in all the facilities and can access them in our own time.”
What do you like about studying and living in Nottingham?
“Nottingham is big enough to explore, but small enough to feel like a home. There’s loads to enjoy, and for this course especially, lots of locations to photograph! Nottingham also offers many opportunities and holds some stunning events throughout the year, so there is always something going on.”
Why would you recommend studying BA (Hons) Photography at NTU?
“Anyone can take a picture these days, but studying Photography at NTU not only opens doors to many opportunities in the industry, but also gives you the chance to learn about the history and the social aspect of photography. Photography is more than just some images, it’s a collective of ideas, chemistry and seeing life for what it is and what it can be and NTU has taught me that.”
