Glyndwr University, Wrexham has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Learn and work in a real production environment – this Television Production and Technology course is developed in close collaboration with the BBC, Skillset and leading industry experts.
The course, which focuses on exploring current and emerging technologies applicable to still and moving image production, is different to many as students can engage in the day-to-day operation of the production facility, extending student participation beyond the lecture theatre.
Students will also develop a theoretical and practical understanding across a range of skills in pre-production, production and post-production.
The course centres around the use of the university’s television studio where students explore single and multi-camera filmmaking in addition to lighting and acquisition for visual effects work. It is designed to teach and develop skills across disciplines and covers a broad range of technologies that will help in the development of your own portfolio.
As well as the television studio, the course is built around the practical use of the university’s Centre for the Creative Industries and its wide range of facilities. The centre is home to BBC Cymru in North East Wales.
You can also choose to study this course as a three year degree (without a foundation year) BSc (Hons) Television Production and Technology UCAS Code: HW66
