Program description

Film and Television Production (Including Foundation Year) BA (Hons) (Full-time)

Why study this course?

Our Film and Television Production (including foundation year) BA (Hons) degree is a four-year course with a built-in foundation year.

The course is a great fit if you want to study film and television production at undergraduate level but you can't meet the entry requirements for the traditional three-year course.

During the foundation year you’ll learn the key principles of creative practice, the conceptual process of idea development and the techniques and materials you’ll use to form your first projects.

Later in the course you’ll focus on longer projects and work on film recording, editing and sound, exploring techniques and methods that will help you achieve your creative vision. Your work-in-progress projects will be presented to students and staff regularly to prepare you for the final show at the end of the year. These presentations are an opportunity to ensure your work is progressing the way you intend it to.

The foundation year will give you the chance to explore what your specific practice might be, with the option of specialising after this initial year. This year will be share with students from other foundation year courses, so you'll get to learn about different disciplines within the School of Computing and Digital Media.

You’ll learn from tutors who are specialists in the field of film and television production, giving you an insight into the industry and its modern practices; the course also includes a work placement element.

You’ll be encouraged and supported throughout the course, with regular feedback given to ensure you are achieving your full potential.
