On this course you won’t be asked to simply replicate what you’ve seen on screen, we want you to be an innovator and shape the future of television.
You’ll produce your own programmes, fictional as well as factual, both in the studio and on location, giving you crucial hands-on experience as well as a solid grounding in real-world professional television production.
This course combines a practical professional approach with academic critical and theoretical study of the media industry. Plus you’ll have access to broadcast-quality resources, new studios and post-production facilities coming in 2019-20, including a new film studio and two Ultra High Definition broadcast standard multicamera TV studios. Professional standard resources will also include Sony FS5 and Panasonic AC160/AG371 cameras, SQN sound mixers and Avid edit suites.
You’ll have the option to complete either a four-week or 30-week placement. Not only will you put the theory and skills learnt on the course into action, but you’ll also harvest a network of professional contacts, enhance your resume with some much-required experience, and ultimately improve your future career prospects.
You’ll be taught by professional practitioners, eminent media academic staff and industry-seasoned guest speakers, so by the end of your degree you’ll have gained a complementary blend of academic skills and industry-realistic practical ones. This ensures you’ll have a thorough understanding of the issues surrounding TV production, as well as all the practical skills you’ll need to soar into a career in the industry.
As a student on this course you'll have the chance to take advantage of opportunities with RedBalloon, an award winning professional production unit based in the Faculty of Media and Communication.
