About the course

This course is ideal for students who want to work as part of the team behind the camera. The course is hands-on, highly practical, taught in a multi-camera TV studio, and has very impressive graduate success stories. The University of Bedfordshire recently launched Beds TV enabling students to broadcast their own work online.

The course will enable students to create industry standard television production work and develop their understanding of the television industry today. They will develop production and technical skills both in the studio and on location - and learn about emerging technological opportunities in the field of television production. In addition students will develop their communication and collaborative skills, which will help them become a more effective and industry-ready television practitioner.
