Photography in Brussels

Professional Bachelor / Exchange Programme

When choosing for Photography taught at our campus Narafi Brussels, you're choosing for a programme where technique and creativity go hand in hand, while developing a personal style and unique approach on the photographic medium.


Programme for exchange students: The professional bachelor in Photography is a creative, assignment-oriented programme where technique and creativity go hand in hand, while developing a personal style and unique approach on the photographic medium.

Students explore all photography genres: from still life, portraits and fashion, to documentary and conceptual photography. Alongside taking photos, there is a strong focus on image manipulation and post-production. As they progress, students discover where their personal interests lie which leads to them developing into authentic photographers. All students will be trained to become ‘image makers’, photographers with a vision and a strong portfolio in terms of content and technique.

Each year we organize extracurricular project weeks led by invited professional photographers: an international reportage week and a fashion week. If the situation allows, exchange students will also be able to take part in one or multiple project weeks.

At LUCA we attach great importance to the quality of our courses

If the basic principle of the policy plan means that 'quality is our driving force', and that every aspect of the policy can be tested against this, then LUCA undeniably wants to develop and nurture a strong quality culture: a culture that leaves based on trust in people with talent and expertise, and which is aimed at valuing, inspiring and improving.

The formal quality framework for training within LUCA was named KOPERA, which stands for: Critically Analyzing the Quality of Training with Peers in Own Direction.
For KOPERA, LUCA starts from a vision of quality care that is based on trust and aimed at valuing, inspiring and improving.

During the six-year KOPERA cycle, each training course receives a panel of critical friends who examine the implementation of the quality characteristics and examine how the training contributes to the general LUCA policy.
The final element of KOPERA is the ultimate assurance of training quality. The key question is: "Does the program have a good quality culture that follows the 'plan-do-check-act' circle?"

LUCA publishes a quality sheet for each course. You can find this on the Education Quality page.
