The Media Production (Film and Television) MA has been awarded the Creative Skillset Tick, the industry kitemark of quality, following a rigorous assessment process by experts working in the Creative Industries. The Creative Skillset Tick is awarded to practice-based courses which best prepare students for a career in the industry.
You will cover areas of 360 commissioning, workflow, moving camera, advanced editing techniques and production management. This part-time course offers the same opportunities as our full-time Media Production MA. It is spread over two years, which allows you to combine it with flexible paid work and other commitments.
Students on this course are eligible to apply for a BAFTA scholarship. Find out more on the BAFTA website. (Please state on your BAFTA application that you are studying part-time).
All modules are taught during the daytime and you will be studying alongside full-time students. Compared to an undergraduate course, you will find that this Masters requires a higher level of independent working. The course aims to stretch your creativity and maximise your sense of personal fulfilment.
You will work on group production projects which will be supported by workshops, studio sessions, tutorials and seminars, as well as master classes led by industry professionals.
Assessment methods include your practical work with supporting reports that place the work in its academic context.
You will complete a supervised dissertation or major project on a topic of your choice. As the culmination of the course, it will build on all the skills and knowledge that you have gained up to this point.
Some modules have prerequisites. Read more about what this means in our Help and Advice article.
