The month-long course consisting of lectures and seminars will help students "improve critical understanding of the photographic self-portrait," The Telegraph reported.

Students can look forward to explore notions of identity, selfhood and memory.

"The budding photographers will be taught how to explain ideas of space, place and surrounding issues, use light and significant detail in their work and even develop new ideas to make their photography more relevant," the report said.

They would also be expected to "critique visual work from a variety of practitioners", it said.

The 'practitioners' could include Ellen Degeneres – whose 2015 Oscar selfie became the most retweeted ever.
