More showreels can be found on our youtube playlist

Both pathways on this degree will produce graduates who are highly skilled studio and location professionals who are able to work on multi or single-camera productions. These skills are applied to a variety of television genres.

This also includes technical skills in cameras, lighting and sound. You will learn through a mix of practice and theory-based learning that includes lectures, workshops, seminars, projects and self-directed study. This course is led by industry experts who are often working in production and broadcast.

The production pathway is designed for those who want to make innovative television programming using a variety of distribution platforms, including social media.

The operations pathway will teach you about varied production techniques and digital operations, including the use of media asset management systems.
