Course summary

If you have a passion for producing audio and video and for communicating with an audience, then this is the programme for you. Taught by existing and former broadcast professionals and renowned media academics, this degree offers all the skills, aptitude and abilities for you to enter the broadcast industry with a confidence and ability.Perhaps you’ve already got your own radio podcast about your favourite football team, or you’ve always wanted to make TV drama or write the script? Do you have a burning desire to tell people’s stories through documentary, to direct a studio show, production manage a large production and, overall, have a hunger to develop the skills required to make the best content, as a future professional? Or perhaps you just love the idea of studying the theory that underpins all of this? You may be headed in the direction of TV and Radio production, or you may just want to do audio and video production brilliantly on another platform. And, if you don’t yet have any experience but have all the ambition, the course starts at a place everyone who meets the entry requirements can begin their exciting journey.On the BA TV and Radio Production programme, you’ll learn how to find great stories, develop your ideas, pitch and present those ideas, write scripts, research, pre-produce and produce your ideas whether this is for radio or tv, or another audio or video platform. There will be opportunity to take on real-world briefs from industry as part of the course. You can develop your craft skills in camera and lighting, studio production, editing, creative audio or the skills necessary to manage productions. You can also go the theory route where you critically underpin practice with academic rigour. Crucially, following the first year, YOU will choose your own pathway through the programme to specialise in TV or Radio, or to study a mixture of both. You can also select a mix of production, practice and theory to suit your interests and abilities. And, all the way through, you will have the opportunity to make your own programmes and films or podcasts, radio shows, studio shows, dramas or documentaries. The three years of content production lead up to a final major project: either an ambitious production that can be your calling card for industry or a media theory dissertation for those wishing to pursue the more academic route.Our unique location at the heart of MediaCityUK means you’ll be perfectly placed to tap into a network of leading media companies, from the BBC and ITV to a range of experimental start-up companies across the cities of Salford and Manchester. All of the equipment and facilities in our MediaCityUK campus building is industry standard to the same specification as the big name producer-broadcasters that are our next-door neighbours. And, like all good neighbours, we have them round to visit regularly. There is also lots of opportunity to engage with industry – both within the course and as added extras you can get involved with, like the Media Futures conference where students get to pitch ideas to broadcasters.In the most recent National Student Survey, our TV and radio production degree received 91% for overall student satisfaction (University of Salford analysis of unpublished NSS 2020 data). **You will:** - Study a cutting-edge programme in state-of-the-art facilities at MediaCityUK - Work on industry-focused projects with a variety of media and arts organisations across the cities of Salford and Manchester - Learn production and technical skills from leading industry practitioners.- Develop a theoretical and critically analytical skillset to underpin practice. **Visit our TV and Radio Production degree CourseFinder webpage -****Explore all of our Film, TV and Radio
