This course will develop your knowledge of factual UK TV and digital media content production, and your creative and technical skills, to an advanced level. It offers a broad and intensively practical foundation, mixing theory with current industry practice. Along the way, you’ll make seven films of differing lengths and write a dissertation on whatever media subject excites and interests you.
Focusing on two key roles, the director and the producer (which in current factual programming are merged into one), you’ll explore the dynamics of the industry, and what it takes to succeed in a constant cycle of change. You’ll learn to become a visual storyteller, a communicator, a collaborator, a motivator and a problem solver. You’ll also develop the skills of scheduling, production managing, budgeting and marketing programmes. Although the emphasis is on factual programming, there is scope and flexibility to develop more creative films.
With specialist workshops on the technical skills of camera operation, sound, lighting and editing, you’ll develop professional skills in screen-based production. This will be supported by tutorials, diary work, and independent research, giving you a strong critical and contextual grounding for your practical work.
You’ll be encouraged to collaborate with other students both on the course and across different disciplines and platforms, helping you to become a flexible media professional who can take on the production and delivery of high quality video content for many different clients.

This course will prepare you for a career in TV or in the broader media, and help you to decide which areas of the industry attract you the most. Although the emphasis of the course is on directing and producing, you might want to move into cinematography, production management or even television programme sales. You might, for instance, develop a particular interest in observational documentary, natural history films, or science programming.
You’ll gain specialist skills that will be useful for traditional, experimental and creative documentary making, or films for education, training, public relations, current affairs, marketing, and campaigning. The course will equip you to forge a portfolio or freelance career, giving you the ability to make high quality content for broadcast, web, film festival or cinema.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
