Mission & Strategy

Our teaching philosophy is to produce industry ready graduates. There is a strong emphasis on the word professional throughout the course with an emphasis on ensuring final year work is of broadcast standard. The film and television department have strong links with industry, through professional contacts, to maximise student experience and employability. Over 90% of all students on the course are engaged in placements with top companies and broadcasters such as BBC, ITV and Shepperton Studios. The course has worked with more than 80 employers over the last year and in house corporate projects with employers including BMW, Grand Chappel Music, Britvic and Monarch. Final year work culminates in a dissertation and final film project, which students can use as a calling card into the industry.

The aspiration for our graduates is that they will have developed the knowledge, skills and attributes to equip them for life in a complex and rapidly changing world. In addition to their subject expertise and proficiency, the Programme’s graduates will have the following attributes:

• Professionalism, employability and enterprise
• Learning and research skills
• Intellectual depth, breadth and adaptability
• Respect for others
• Social responsibility
