Overview

This unique course is built on our long tradition of teaching interdisciplinary media practice, working across moving image, photography and interactive media. Our approach combines the creative exploration of art school traditions with academic and professional excellence. We have extensive industry-level facilities and equipment, and to develop your skills and knowledge we use a variety of assessment methods, including practical projects, presentations, written work, research tasks and portfolios.

The course sets high standards for professional achievement in specific media industry roles, and prepares you for the challenge of a multi-skilled portfolio career. You will also gain the transferable and cognitive skills necessary for lifelong personal and professional development. Graduates have a high employment rate across the media industries, including broadcast television; commercial photography and photojournalism; curating and film programming; film direction, production, editing and visual effects; fine art practice; and new media. Our graduates include Anand Tucker (director/producer), Aaqil Ahmed (commissioning editor, BBC), Ori Gersht (artist, filmmaker and photographer), Rafi Pitts (director), Martha Fiennes (director and artist), Zed Nelson (photographer) and many others.

This course will enable you to develop your creative media production skills across a range of disciplines, and give you the ability to adapt to the creative opportunities of new media forms and hybrids. It will enhance your ability to participate in contemporary cultural debates, and develop your awareness of the political, ethical and aesthetic implications of your work.

The course is part of the University of Westminster’s School of Media, Arts and Design, based at our state-of-the-art Harrow Campus – a cutting-edge creative hub, and one of the leading media, arts and design educational facilities in Europe.

You will be taught through a mix of lectures, group and individual tutorials, and workshops, supporting the development of your skills across media to a level equivalent to single-discipline courses.
