This foundation degree has been designed to provide you with the necessary knowledge and skills that will enable you to play a significant role in the rapidly expanding digital and creative media industries, with a particular focus on film and photography. At the end of your course, you will be capable of producing high-quality short films, screenplays and photographs, as well as embracing an understanding of critical and historical traditions in these disciplines. During your studies you will consider a variety of production practices, including digital filmmaking, screenwriting and digital photography. You will also be developing professionally focused research skills, as well as pre and post-production techniques. The history of film and photography will also be considered, where you will learn the theoretical approaches to understanding and evaluating these forms of media. You will have access to the latest industry-standard equipment and software, and the skills you develop on the course will be directly transferable to employment opportunities within the creative media sector. Throughout this course you will be encouraged to develop a critical and reflective approach to your own practice, enabling you to adapt and grow as an independent practitioner. Upon completion, you will have developed both technical and transferable skills, which could lead to a range of careers within this dynamic and evolving sector. Level 4 (Year 1 for full-time students) develops the underpinning knowledge and principles associated with the adventure leadership sector, for example the principles and philosophy of adventure leadership and psychology of the outdoors. Level 5 (Year 2 for full-time students) develops the foundations of understanding from Level 4 to support with the progression of more critical thinking skills such as analysing the impacts of the adventure sector and future trends and opportunities. The full-time and part-time course has one start point in September. Our students have the opportunity to work towards BCU 2 and 3 Star, UKCC Level 1 Coach, Mountain Leader and Single Pitch Award qualifications during their studies. This provides you with a broad skillset that will offer you a variety of opportunities upon the completion of your studies.
