Making exciting and innovative productions, in both film and television, is at the heart of this degree. The programme is distinguished by its emphasis on the development of high level technical, creative and professional skills as well as its critical focus on film and television practice. Some previous production experience would be an advantage, but for anyone with an interest in communicating with audiences, whatever your medium or message, we will help you develop the academic and professional skills to realise that ambition. You will work with some of the best technical facilities in the North West and gain practical experience writing, shooting and editing your own unique productions.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
A few years ago graduates from this subject were having a very hard time but things have improved a lot thanks to our active media, film and photographic industries - much the most common employers for this group. The most common jobs are in the arts — as photographers, audio-visual technicians, operators and designers, as directors, as artists and as graphic designers. Training in presenting sound and graphics is useful in other industries as well, so you can find graduates in journalism, in advertising, in business management, in events management and in web design and IT. Be aware that freelancing and self-employment is common in the arts, as are what is termed 'portfolio careers' — having several part-time jobs or commissions at once.
