Course summary

Film:

Our Film degree promotes a balance between the practical and theoretical. You’ll explore everything from fiction to documentary, experimental film to world cinema, and television to the internet, as well as screenwriting, animation and cinematography.

Looking beyond the story, you’ll consider how meaning is created through film language and visual aesthetics. You'll broaden and deepen your critical awareness of the diverse formal and experiential possibilities of cinema, both as they have developed in the past, and as they are transforming in the contemporary moment.

Career opportunities

You could go on to work in film production, distribution or exhibitions, in a film festival organisation or in film research. The skills you gain are also transferable to advertising, PR and other media-related industries.

Our careers team is available to support you from the start of your studies until after you graduate. They will help you build your CV, prepare for interviews, and meet and learn from successful graduates working at the top of their careers. You'll also have opportunities to work with our partners across London and beyond and attend a Roehampton jobs fair where you can find out about graduate opportunities and meet employers.

Creative Writing:

Taught by published, working writers (including acclaimed poets, novelists, journalists and screenwriters), our BA Creative Writing degree introduces writing practice to you in four main forms: fiction, nonfiction, poetry and screenwriting.

As you explore the technical craft and process of writing, you'll develop your skills as a writer, as well as other key abilities such as research and critical analysis.

This is one of the longest-established creative writing degree courses in London and one of only a few courses in the UK to offer innovative fiction and poetry, copywriting and a strong non-fiction strand.

While studying writing, and honing your own writing abilities, you will also acquire skills you’ll need to succeed in your career, with modules on how to write to industry representatives, and excellent career resources.

Career options

You will be equipped to go into freelance writing, screenwriting, the gaming industry, television and film, arts and literary events management, teaching and the publishing industry.
