Course content

The course is a full-time degree taken over a twelve-month period (September to August).The year is divided into two teaching semesters (September to December, and January to April). The summer period is used to complete a final project or placement. The programme offers training in digital and interactive media integrated with courses in the history of experimental film, supported by regular film screenings and workshops. The ethos of the programme is 'reflective practice'-that is, understanding digital media production as a process informed by narrative analysis, cinematic traditions and creative discussion.
