Our full time Creative Media Production and Technology Moving Image pathway course, is designed for students who have a strong interest in the study of moving image productions, such as Film and TV. Our programme of study is creative, critical and compelling in its approach, offering a unique combination and equal balance of theory and practical work. During the 2 year course, you will work with leading practitioners, reaping the benefits of close supervision from industry trained staff who are leaders in film, television and media production. Your study of Media will help you develop your appreciation of moving image and print media’s rich artistic, social and political traditions. We also run a competitive work placement scheme and the majority of our students go on to study media and communications and film production as a chosen discipline within Higher Education or employment.
Joining our department, you will enter an intellectually and culturally rich environment supported by excellent facilities, where you are actively encouraged to pursue your own interests, activities and passions within moving image.
