Career opportunities

There are a wide range of opportunities in the film, television and other media industries, as well as in public service and teaching. Graduates from this programme have gone on to work in film and TV development, production and post-production, media marketing and advertising, in communication roles in industry, and for film festivals. You will also have a range of postgraduate options.

We place great emphasis on our students’ abilities to reflect upon and see their practical and theoretical work in a larger critical context. To this end, we sharpen writing and presentation skills through a variety of assignments that go beyond standard essays and reports. Our students hone their writing skills (journalistic, creative and academic) through descriptive, analytical and critical writing, presentations and hands-on use of digital media tools. You will also develop professional skills by working with others to see projects (sometimes large ones) through from idea to completion.

Each theory based course is allocated 2 to 3 hours per week, with a mixture of lecture, seminar and workshop.

Students are taught by renowned experts working in a variety of film-related fields. Our Film Studies staff have won awards for scripts and short films, prizes for published articles and books, and also engage in public work.
