Media Production at Lincoln is focused on the creative foundations and technical skills needed to thrive as a professional in a rapidly changing media landscape. Lincoln’s industry-focused course offers students a comprehensive experience across the many platforms of today’s creative sector. This includes TV and screen, design and new emergent media, radio, and sound.

How You Study

The programme begins with a focus on the generation of creative ideas across various platforms. It introduces media fundamentals and digital workflows. Students are able to practice these skills by creating their own content and can go on to specialise in the media that most suits their personal interests and career aspirations.

Lincoln School of Film and Media has a range of online resources, and discussion groups where students can share ideas and network. A rolling programme of visiting lectures from industry professionals and creative academics enhances the core curriculum.

This course has a significant emphasis on collaboration and creative entrepreneurship, helping you to shape your own destiny as a media producer. There are opportunities, through the Lincoln School of Film and Media Academy and our social enterprise New Media Lincs, to get involved with real-world projects outside the course. This could range from collaborations within the College of Arts, international institutions, the bi-annual Frequency Festival, our annual LSFM showcase, joining our co_LAB innovation group, or working on paid professional commissions.

Some courses offer students the opportunity to undertake placements. When students are on an optional placement in the UK or overseas or studying abroad, they will be required to cover their own transport and accommodation and meals costs. Placements can range from a few weeks to a full year if students choose to undertake an optional sandwich year in industry (where available). Students are encouraged to obtain placements in industry independently. Tutors may provide support and advice to students who require it during this process.
