This is a stimulating course which will immerse you in the practical aspects of programme-making. You’ll have ample opportunity to make documentaries, television drama, music videos, studio magazines and talk shows.

The curriculum has a professional media practice theme running throughout the three years, and blends theory with practice. This is a hands-on degree, where you’ll learn by doing, all underpinned with strong theoretical and academic knowledge. As such there are no exams in this course, with modules being assessed instead through research reports, conference type presentations or written blogs, while practical modules are assessed through coursework. There are also placement reports for the Professional and Academic Development module.
