The group gives the alumni a forum to continue the discussion about photography developed during the MA course, potentially encouraging alumni from all past year groups to share good practice and keep in touch through crits and other joint events. Termly meetings support the discussion of current projects, show proposals and other applications, teaching practices and academic or creative writing.

The group also provides a valuable resource for recent graduates who benefit from the experience of many alumni now active around the globe in fields ranging from editing and publishing, curating, production and postproduction, undertaking PhDs and becoming academics, working in art institutions and the creative industries and commercial sector as well as being respected as inventive photographers, exhibiting artists and critical writers.

To this end, we hold an annual alumni event to welcome the new graduates into the network during which some alumni give brief talks about their experiences post graduation, as well as presenting current work in the setting of an informal portfolio walk.
