The foundation of all film, TV and radio output is scriptwriting and on this course you’ll discover how to produce high-quality scripts that can be brought to life.
The course teaches you how to produce scripts, as well as encouraging you to develop your creative voice and writing style, alongside studying various aspects of film, television and the media as a whole. It’s accredited by Creative Skillset in recognition of the excellent preparation it offers graduates looking to enter the creative industries.
You’ll be taught by highly-skilled academic staff and professional practitioners, alongside regular guest speakers from the industry, who will help you to discover the secrets of pitching and developing documents, so that when you graduate you’ll know exactly how to get your scripts noticed, as well as giving you an overview of the film and TV production processes.
During the course you’ll work collaboratively with students on other courses, giving you opportunities to see your work produced and form creative partnerships.
To complement what you learn in the classroom, you’ll have the opportunity to do a work placement of either four or 30 weeks. The result will be an invaluable experience and a host of professional contacts, which will help you enter the workplace in a much stronger position. This is complemented by a graduate degree show held in London at the end of the course where you can make contacts and potentially secure employment.
