Course summary

Explore the exciting and ever-evolving world of Media and TV. Develop your production skills in our excellent facilities, with our highly experienced staff. This course will prepare you for a career in the creative industries and beyond. You will learn about the media and develop a range of technical and creative skills, from audio and video recording to pitching an idea for the next big TV show. Along with our recording spaces and post-production facilities, the Department has an extensive loan provision which includes a range of video cameras, audio recording devices and specialist kit. Whilst there is a real focus on practice on this course, this is underpinned by a critical understanding of the media industry, about key practices, regulation and organisations. We will encourage you to develop and pursue your particular media and TV interests throughout the course. In Year 3, you will work on a large-scale practical or written project which will enable you to explore your interests further. This could take the form of a television documentary, podcast or a written dissertation exploring a key media-related issue, which will enable you to explore your specific specialist interests.
