From the 2022/23 academic year, the programme will only be available in English language. Our Photography MA programme trains open-minded and highly autonomous artists who are able to respond sensitively and progressively to the challenges of the world, supported by state-of-the-art technology and renowned teachers.
Our long-standing programme covers the development and full-spectrum implementation of long-term photography projects; design and art research; the development of the Central and Eastern European vision of the genre; and the exploration of its intersections.
Thanks to their solid knowledge and skills, artists graduating from our programme can hold their own in the international photography arena. We place a strong emphasis on collaborations with professional partners, and the successful participation of our students in international and domestic competitions, fairs and festivals.


Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design (MOME) further expands its international education portfolio following the successful launch of its first two English MA programmes. Students looking to continue their education in the creative industries will now have the opportunity to study Animation and Design in English language from September 2023, in addition to Photography and Interaction Design, building a valuable network and gaining future-shaping, competitive knowledge while still at university.

This year’s Paris Photo, the largest international photography fair took place between 10 and 13 November in Paris. Whether at the fair itself or at the accompanying events, the works of our students, teachers and alumni were featured throughout.

Titled ‘Elsewhere’ this year, the now thirteen years old OFF Bratislava Biennale is about the force that drives people to move, migrate or just aimlessly wander around and their concepts of home and foreign land.

Opening on 22 January 2023 at 10:00 a.m., on the Day of Hungarian Culture, the exhibition explores subject of the homeland and national symbols under the title Nation and Association – What does “Hungary Calls You” mean to you?.
