Our highly focused Scriptwriting for Film & Television degree offers training in creating the very foundation of film and television; the scripts themselves.
You’ll develop your own creative voice and writing style, while learning how to produce scripts and studying various aspects of film, television and the media as a whole. The course is accredited by Creative Skillset in recognition of the excellent preparation it offers graduates looking to enter the creative industries.
You'll be taught by highly-skilled academic staff and professional practitioners, alongside regular guest speakers from the industry, who will help you to discover the secrets of pitching and developing documents, so that when you graduate you'll know exactly how to get your scripts noticed, as well as giving you an overview of the film and TV production processes.
During the course you will work collaboratively with students, giving you opportunities to see your work made and form creative partnerships which can lead to career opportunities.
To complement what you learn in the classroom, you’ll be required to execute a work placement of either four or 30 weeks, depending on the length of your degree. Furthermore, we host a graduate degree show in London at the end of your course to enable you to celebrate your achievements and make further industry contacts.
