We teach with substantial use of Masterclasses where senior industry figures deliver classes directly to our students, such as senior members of the British Society of Cinematographers and the Guild of British Film and Television Editors, as featured on our program's web page. Our program is validated by the British Kinematograph Sound and Television Society and regular BKSTS events (usually taking place at the Moving Picture Company, Soho) support our program.

You will work in 35mm, S16, 2K and 4K digital, using equipment current in the industry. From October to May, you will attend taught courses, and from May to September you will undertake a final project. You will also use the skills you build up throughout the degree to produce your own showreels.

The new demands created by the rapidly evolving post-production area will be explored from several viewpoints: technology, creativity and collaboration. This programme progresses you through a comprehensive programme of post-production topics: editing, motion graphics, colour correction and compositing. At the same time fundamental issues, such as flexibility and quality are addressed. You will use advanced techniques, used in industry, whilst developing their knowledge, creativity, and skills.

The studio facilities of the university will be augmented by those of One8six and ARRI these being our strategic partners in this programme and our participants during its validation.

Our lecturing staff have a substantial background in feature film and television production. The programme also features distinguished guest speakers.
