On this course you won’t be asked to simply replicate what you’ve seen on screen, we want you to be an innovator and shape the future of television.
You’ll produce your own programmes, fictional as well as factual, both in the studio and on location, giving you crucial hands-on experience as well as a solid grounding in real-world professional television production.
Accredited by Creative Skillset, the film and TV industries skills council, this course combines a hands-on professional approach with academic critical and theoretical study of the media industry. Plus you’ll have access to broadcast-quality resources, including a 100 square metre multi camera HD studio, Panasonic AC160, AG371 and Sony FS5 cameras, SQN sound mixers and Avid edit suites.
You’ll have the option to complete either a four-week or 30-week placement. Not only will you put the theory and skills learnt on the course into action, but you’ll also harvest a network of professional contacts, enhance your resume with some much-required experience, and ultimately improve your future career prospects.
You’ll be taught by professional practitioners, eminent media academic staff and industry-seasoned guest speakers, so by the end of your degree you’ll have gained a complementary blend of academic skills and industry-realistic practical ones. This ensures you’ll have a thorough understanding of the issues surrounding TV production, as well as all the practical skills you’ll need to soar into a career in the industry.
