Welcome to Film and Media Production

Our range of film and media production courses will provide you with an in-depth knowledge of working in film, TV and multi-platform formats. You will develop a wide range of technical, writing and creative skills and learn to challenge, question and explore what is possible in moving image media. As you progress through your degree you can choose from a wide range of specialist modules in both writing and production that will allow you to delve more deeply into your particular area of interest.

Lecturers with Real Industry Experience

Our lecturers have media industry experience. Their creative and theoretical work includes feature film production, documentary film making, experimental filmmaking and multi-platform production. We also offer a programme of high-profile guest lecturers.

Work Placements

Our dedicated Media Industry Liaison Co-ordinator can help establish industry links and work placements, where the right students can be provided paid experience.

University based Production Company

Having an established production company at the University enables our students to understand what it’s like to work in a real working environment.

Production Budgets

Students are offered production budgets for each of their films so that students can cover essential costs and bring in professional expertise.

European Visits

We work with universities in Europe so that students can study part of their programme abroad and we also organise trips to European film festivals.

Film Festivals

Student work is entered into festivals both locally and nationally so that you receive good exposure for your films and we organise student-centred festivals and opportunities to meet writers and film makers.
