The Master of Film and Television prepares you for the diverse challenges of the industry, from finding roles that match your interests, to pitching your ideas and, ultimately, bringing your stories to life on the screen. Build practical skills in world-class facilities, and graduate with an impressive portfolio to stand out from the crowd. The masters degree is grounded in the everyday realities of the film and television industry. By breaking down some of the misconceptions about working in film and television, our graduates are better prepared for future roles, and more in control of their careers. On top of practical skills for film and television production, the course focuses on transferrable skills – like collaboration, problem-solving and personal organisation – that are crucial for success in media industries. From your first year, you’ll get hands-on experience with media production projects. In fact, 70% of assignments in the course will involve the production of film and television content. Through extensive practical experience, you’ll develop your own unique style of storytelling across different platforms and for different audiences. In addition, you’ll expand your networks and build further real-world experience with a screen internship. Your internship allows you to hone your craft alongside experienced producers in film, television, sound, animation or digital media, all while developing professional relationships that can help you get a foot in the door when you graduate.
