The BA Film and Television Studies (with a Foundation Year) is an innovative programme aimed at developing your skills and knowledge ready for study on the prestigious Film and Television Studies degree offered by the Faculty of Arts and Humanities. You will be develop skills in all the areas you need, from essay writing, to research, to preparing and giving presentations.

We recognise that our BA Film and Television Studies programme demands high entry standards, but we also appreciate that not everyone is able to achieve these at A level. If you have thought about going to university, but something has got in the way, this course is perfect for you. It is our way of helping you to get on the right track to start your career in higher education.

The Foundation Year is an intensive period of study during which you will have an average of 14 hours per week of guided learning, to help you develop a variety of essential study skills. It is designed to fill in any gaps in your knowledge or experience so that you’ll be ready for undergraduate study. We work closely with you to identify and work towards your individual learning goals. You will be taught by dedicated lecturers from the Interdisciplinary Institute for the Humanities, getting the opportunity to explore a wide range of academic subjects. You will gain essential knowledge of many of the concepts, methods and techniques you will need in order to carry out successful study in the rest of your degree. The class sizes are smaller, to give you the best teaching possible, and you will get individual tutorials, ensuring you get the most out of the programme.

All modules are taught via lectures, presentations, seminars and study groups and incorporate a variety of assessment methods, preparing you for the different types of assessments you will experience during your degree. Through group tutorials, interactive training sessions and formative feedback you will be able to develop skills in areas such as essay writing, research, preparing and giving presentations, and understanding and evaluating scholarly arguments.

Following successful completion of the Foundation Year you will join the first year of the Film and Television Studies degree. But you’ll also have the option to switch to another degree programme, with the approval of the Course Director.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

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.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.
