As a student on this very collaborative and practice based programme, you will develop the skills and the discipline of scriptwriting, directing, and producing for both stage and screen, giving you a distinct competitive advantage within the industry that you can use to forge a path in the Film, TV and Theatre industries.

As a student on this programme, you can specialise in Scriptwriting for stage and screen, Directing for both stage and screen and Production Management for stage and screen or a combination of all the above, making them readily employable in both market places.

Aligning with other stage and screen programmes at the The Northern School of Art, there is the opportunity for you to develop a collaborative approach to your stage and screen production, mirroring the workings of industry. You will create a product on screen or in a theatrical production, that will showcase your skills and abilities to create new and original content with cutting edge 4K technology, as well as the opportunity to create both traditional 16mm film and contemporary theatre practice; this will give you the broadest showreel possible, making your employment opportunities vast.

You will work for live clients and submit for festivals and competitions throughout the programme including the 16mm Kodak Commercial Awards, RTS Awards and National Student Drama Festival amongst others.

Furthermore, our current Production Design and Costume degrees can also provide opportunities for collaboration to offer the students a fully rounded and holistic teaching environment where they have access to a complete production process.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
