Course summary

Utilising the expertise of our expanded Scriptwriting team the course builds on the skill base and reputation of our established undergraduate course and boasts improved facilities as a result of the move to our £15 Million Media Factory development with state-of-the-art facilities.

The course offers an in-depth knowledge of writing for radio, television, film and stage with emphasis on current industry practice and employability, equipping students with the most appropriate practice skills. Students will have the opportunity to participate in the writing of a full-length feature film that is produced. Students will also be contenders for the new Matt Greenhalgh Award. The course is ideally located with access to local radio and the North West’s vibrant live grassroots theatre and new BBC production base.

Final year undergraduate and postgraduate media students can get involved in our annual cJAM employability event. cJAM shakes-up the traditional career fair format and gives UCLan students face-to-face time with up to 30 successful industry professionals all of whom have come to the event with the offer of valuable work placement opportunities.
