Course content

This ground-breaking course is for those who want to turn their ideas and aspirations into success. Whether you plan to manage the next generation of film and television programmes, shape a career as a researcher, associate producer or production manager, or even run your own independent production company, the course will give you the practical training and theoretical grounding to achieve your ambitions in the dynamic world of media production.

You will learn how to develop your ideas as viable projects and sell them in a highly competitive marketplace. Thanks to expert tuition from professionals with experience from across industry, you will become accomplished in managing productions as a producer, production manager, location manager and first assistant director. You’ll be working from a base room which provides a production office environment for planning work and seminars.

Working collaboratively with other students in related subjects, you will plan and produce your own projects and learn how to work collaboratively within a creative environment. The final production project will serve as evidence of your abilities to develop, plan and manage a project from concept to screen, and there is also an option to develop an alternative research-focused project if you prefer. The course has been awarded the ‘Creative Skillset Tick’, the industry kitemark of quality, which is awarded to practice-based courses which best prepare students for a career in the industry.
