Postgraduate Media Production courses

We’re recognised as the largest centre of professionally-based higher education for the media and communications industries in the UK and we deliver courses designed to set you apart from the crowd. All of our courses are accredited by the International Moving Image Society (IMIS) in recognition of our industry-standard teaching.

Film and broadcasting rely on the close collaboration of specialist practitioners. Here at Bournemouth University, we offer an industry-replicating collaborative framework so that you can specialise and develop higher-level skills and responsibilities in your own chosen craft while working with other advanced learners across the production disciplines.

We operate, in effect, like a large production studio. Writers, directors and producers pitch ideas and scripts to the whole group and production teams are formed through negotiation. The staff team are, in effect, the executive producers, greenlighting and supervising projects through production.

Students and graduates from our courses have gone on to work on award-winning films and programmes, as well as winning awards themselves. Recent graduates have worked on Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Peterloo, Son of Saul, The Night Manager, Troy: Fall of a City, Masterchef, Iron Man, Gravity and The Death of Stalin.

Guest speakers
