Film

Do you want to develop a deep understanding of film as an art form and cultural phenomenon? Do you want to learn the creative and technical skills to produce your own distinctive work to a professional standard? We'll give you a broad introduction to film in your first year, developing your key analytical skills and knowledge of contemporary developments in the international film industry. ​You'll study all aspects of audio-visual production, developing a range of practical and craft skills to write, shoot and edit your own films. You'll deepen and extend your knowledge and abilities in years 2 and 3, studying core modules that explore approaches to researching and theorising film, and develop your practice in documentary and fiction filmmaking. You have the freedom to explore the aspects of film that interest you with a choice of practical and academic options including the UK film industry, digital effects and science fiction. We structure your options to make sure you get a broad knowledge of film, but how you balance the academic and practical is up to you. Real-world experience is at the heart of your degree thanks to the two professional work placements you'll complete. By the time you graduate, you'll have had the opportunity to become a confident, engaged, and skilled professional with extensive specialist knowledge, the ability to generate and communicate original ideas, and a mastery of all the crafts of filmmaking. **Placement opportunities** ​We are one of only a few UK universities to build professional work placements into every degree. You'll complete two professional work placements, which will give you the chance to graduate with up to three months' professional work experience without having to take a sandwich year out. Our students have undertaken placements working as camera operators, production assistants, editors, photographers, visual effects artists, graphic designers, animators, script writers and researchers. We have strong links with many key employers in the region and beyond, including the BBC; ITV; independent production companies in film, television and new media; and marketing, public relations and advertising agencies. **Graduate opportunities** Our graduates work as film and television producers, programme schedulers, camera operators, sound recordists, freelance filmmakers and radio producers/ presenters, or go on to further study to prepare for careers as teachers and university lecturers. Many of our graduates establish their own businesses or work for companies including the BBC, Sky and ITV.
