Course summary

This course provides a thorough grounding in screenwriting for film and television. This enables students to produce a diverse portfolio of creative and critical writing. Students learn to write and evaluate screenplays by producing documents such as step-outlines, treatments, screenplays, premises, synopses and script reports. Practical experience is essential in bolstering your employability, so we constantly create opportunities to initiate, negotiate and deliver independent projects, either in individual production groups or with industry partners such the BBC and ITV. Our small workshops provide you with the chance to get insightful feedback on your scripts at least every three weeks, and at certain points in the degree on a weekly basis. Also, at least once a year you pitch your work to industry professionals, such as producers and screenwriters, as part of our script panels and competitions. The broad set of transferable skills students acquire allows them to work in a variety of roles such as screenwriting, script researcher, script editor and storyliner. Student may wish to go on and study at Postgraduate level.
