The BA (Hons) Film, TV & Digital Media Production with Integrated Foundation includes a year of studies at foundation level and is designed to prepare you for direct entry on to the BA (Hons) Film, TV & Digital Media Production degree programme.

The modern media landscape is changing faster than any other industry, as it adapts to new methods of communication, new markets and new technology.

This practical programme, created and taught by media professionals, provides hands-on training and will enable you to respond to changes in the modern broadcast landscape.

You will learn about ‘360-degree broadcasting’, using the large number of platforms through which we now broadcast, watch and interact with media.

You will use the internet creatively to produce material and communicate ideas, as well as learning the traditional skills of directing, producing, sound, lighting, camera, editing and production management.

In addition, you will undertake a degree work placement in the creative industries that will provide you with invaluable first-hand experience and the opportunity to build your own network of industry contacts.

You will be supported before, during and after your placement by our Careers & Business Relations team.
