Course summary

Course description

  • You will be taught by tutors who are still successful in the film and TV industry today. They have worked on feature films, TV dramas, promotional videos and sports broadcasts
  • You will work with the best digital cameras, just like those used for Hollywood blockbusters
  • There’s the option to work with traditional celluloid film (35mm), which is what most blockbuster productions use. Few UK film degrees offer this
  • Our film students have a track record of winning high-profile industry competitions, such as the Royal Television Society Awards and the NAHEMI Kodak Student Commercial Awards
  • You will have many opportunities to gain experience on real film and TV sets, plus we offer a career-making six-month placement with Malta Production Hub.

How you will learn

We use a variety of teaching methods, including:

  • Practical work and production projects
  • Lectures, seminars and tutorials
  • Studio practice
  • Film screenings
  • Presentations
  • Essay or blog writing
  • Web-portfolios
  • Discussion groups and critiques
  • Study trips to places like Prague, New York, Portugal and Malta.


This course will prepare you for a range of specialist careers, in moving image production or in the wider creative industries. For example, graduates from our previous Film Production degree have gone on to work as:

  • technicians in sound, lighting and grips
  • production personnel such as production assistants and runners
  • independent personnel such as script writers, directors of photography, editors, art directors, cinematographers, animation specialists, producers and directors.

Many of our graduates have achieved success as feature film directors and music video artists. They have worked on major film projects such as Assassin’s Creed and 13 Hours while others have worked for the BBC, ITV, MTV, Disney and leading music labels.
