Program Description

Students of the Bachelor in Film and Media (BA) program will learn the language of film from the perspective of a film-maker, and use this to inform their own short films. They will also explore current issues around our data-driven society through modules in digital media theory and law, culture and technology and use this knowledge in the production of apps, podcasts or online platforms.

During the Bachelor in Film and Media (BA) course, students will also have the opportunity to carry out a work placement, or produce a commissioned product, in the area of their choice as they prepare for a career in film and media-related roles, including production, post-production, digital content creation and journalism.

• Tuition fees for students who have citizens' rights after Brexit: £9,250/year
