You will be introduced to the creative and technical aspects of single camera filmmaking and multi-camera television production, supported by film and media theory to inform your practice. You will learn how to generate and develop ideas and adopt a creative approach to your work. In the final year you will undertake a major production project and experience how media theory underpins your practice. There will be opportunities for work experience with our partners at the BBC, other production companies and to work on projects for external clients. In the second and third years there are a range of options to enable you to develop your own areas of interest and expertise. Between the second and third year you can also take a year out to study abroad at a partner university or to do a placement in industry if you choose to study our four year course.

Most modules use a mixture of formal lectures, practical lab sessions, tutorials and seminars. Some modules involve supervised group work, usually with an assigned academic staff member for each group. All modules require students to undertake independent study, supported through distance learning technologies such as our Virtual Learning Environment. Reading lists and suggested resources for independent study provide further direction for students to undertake this work, and regular contact hours and informal feedback throughout the courses provide opportunities for further guidance for learners. Assessments for modules mostly take the form of practical coursework, lab tests and written exams, with all forms being well represented throughout all years of the course across all modules
