When I asked for suggestions and tips it was aimed at more artistic line off work.

I already have 10 year experience under my belt with published work and gaining a BA will open doors for me.

Many people do not understand what a BA or MA is about, you don’t sit on a degree course to learn how to take photos, so please everyone stop by saying you won’t learn anything. Degrees are about achievement and self motivated study and research, there are many careers in photography that REQUIRE you to have a BA or MA.

I already have a BSc so I am full aware of what goes into a degree having already gained one and the is why Hugh above has rightly said I should be able to access an MA.

So please people, lets us start to talk about the Art of photography.

Really??
When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead. All of your pain is felt by others. The same thing happens when you are stupid.

Two recent BA photography grads I know - daughter's friends - it certainly hasn't helped them at all.

Minimum you need is an MA - probably from one of the top London schools.

Sorry to be pessimistic.
It's not Fine Art just because it's in Black and White.
