Course structure

This is a practical-based course with a 70/30 split. The majority of teaching and assessment is based on skills, coursework and content creation, often in groups. The rest may be presentations, essays, critical evaluations, self-review and reports.

The first year is all about building your skills. You’ll be introduced to the studios, the equipment, relevant software and the various roles within TV and radio. This prepares you to concentrate on content creation in the second year, while you explore roles and specialisms. By your final year, you’re ready to delve into the discipline you love, take on your preferred role, pitching and developing proposals and delivering a finished piece to professional standards.

Work experience is an integral part of the course, and throughout your time with us, you’ll be encouraged to continuously liaise with the TV and radio industry about work experience placements and industry-ran masterclasses.
