Course summary

This BA degree is for people who want to focus on the research, analysis and practice of film, TV and radio production. This course will give you a solid understanding of the critical and production elements of film and broadcasting. It is ideal if you want to gain skills in order to work in film, television or radio. You’ll also be given the opportunity to specialise in an area of the entertainment industry as you progress through your degree. Our Film, Television and Radio degree focuses on writing, presenting, producing, editing, analysing and preparing programmes and films for audiences. There will be regular opportunities to attend film festivals, residential trips, networking events and studio visits. Some of our lecturers have previous experience working in the broadcast industry and have association with a number of industry organisations such as The Royal Television Society, The Writers Guild and the Radio Academy. During your first year, you’ll gain practical skills in the three production areas of film, television and radio, as well as learning about their background contexts. You will also explore scriptwriting. To put your new skills into practice, you’ll then work on a production in our TV studio. In Years 2 and 3, you will be given a choice of optional modules so you can specialise in film, television or radio. You’ll also choose broadcasting and cinema research topics that reflect your media interests, as well as gaining industry experience. We have close links with industry and will support you to gain work placements on BBC shows such as The Antiques Roadshow and The Great Pottery Throw Down. Throughout the course, you’ll use our fully equipped media centre, complete with TV and radio studios, to create programmes and films. You will learn about the latest trends in broadcasting and benefit from visits by guest lecturers, such as film and TV directors, scriptwriters, agents and script editors. Many graduates from our Film, Television, and Radio degree work in the media industry. They have worked on productions such as 007 Skyfall, Harry Potter, Let It Shine, 8 Out Of 10 Cats, The Voice UK, Strictly Come Dancing and Emmerdale.
