Course summary

Film and television are exciting, creative and rapidly evolving industries.

They are consistently on the look-out for new ideas, new stories and new talent. Choose this highly creative and highly practical course to learn the latest techniques for producing exciting film and television content. You'll also gain analytical skills that will allow your imagination to flourish in a professional industrial environment.

You will have access to professional-standard single and multi-camera facilities from the outset. With the guidance of expert staff, many of them film and television professionals, you will develop the directing, editing, camera-operating, writing and recording skills you will need to tackle a range of genres and a range of professional disciplines. Over the three years, you will have the chance to imagine and make your own dramas or documentaries and your own studio programmes and to hone your specialist skills in large-scale group productions.

This ScreenSkills accredited programme was developed with input from practising industry specialists. The teaching staff come from a range of media and academic backgrounds and include documentary and feature film-makers, broadcasting executives, scriptwriters and technical practitioners alongside media historians and theorists with national and international reputations.

By studying Film and Television Production at York you will have the chance to follow in the footsteps of graduates who are already making a name for themselves, as cinematographers and writers, as film and studio directors, as editors and vision mixers, as production managers, production designers and researchers.

This course is industry recognised by ScreenSkills, the industry-led skills body for the UK's Film, TV and video games industries, and carries the ScreenSkills quality mark which indicates courses best suited to prepare students for a career in the screen industries. The accreditation means that our students learn professional skills on courses approved and supported by the industry; and it gives access to various schemes, eg internships and traineeships with the BBC, ITV and other broadcasters, as well as independent production companies in British film and television.

Teaching and assessment

You’ll study and learn with academics who are active researchers, experts in their field and have a passion for their subjects. Our approach to teaching will provide you with the knowledge, opportunities, and support you need to grow and succeed in a global workplace.

Assessment and feedback

Assessment methods vary according to modules and include productions, practical exercises, presentations, essays, scripts, project proposals, reports and blogs. A small number of modules feature exams, most of them ‘open book’. In the TV studio some of your work will be assessed by live observation with tutors watching you direct and crew.

In the majority of cases you will be assessed individually. The collaborative nature of the film and TV industries however means that some of your modules will involve group work. In these you will be assessed on the actual film or television programme you have produced as a team, as well as on your individual contribution to the project.

Careers and skills

You will graduate with the practical, technical and creative skills and the experience needed to enter a variety of media industries or to begin a career in independent film and TV production.

Career opportunities

The majority of our graduates move into staff or freelance roles in the film, television and video industries. Recent roles include:
