This is a practice-based course which allows for intensive training and study of Film and Television. Students often graduate having produced high-level, audio-visual work and expert critical analyses of film and television that allow them to work in specialist or broad-based media jobs.
The course shares a common first year with Film and Television Studies BA, which covers both basic audio-visual skills and essential academic knowledge of the film and television field.
Film and Television Production staff on this course include respected film makers Suzanne Cohen, who has a background in delivering innovative and socially aware participatory film projects, and Enrico Tessarin who has 15 years' experience in international co-productions including five feature films, three feature documentaries and countless web series and advertisements. Robb Horsley is an award-winning filmmaker whose work has been shown at many international film festivals and broadcast on major television networks including BBC, ITV, SKY, NBC and MTV.

Alumni include one of only three black female filmmakers to have directed a feature film that has received a nationwide release in the UK, a cinematographer working on TV shows such as League of Gentlemen and Cold Feet, and an independent filmmaker who has directed numerous television advertisements while also developing his own web drama series.
Recent graduates have moved onto masters degrees at Goldsmiths and at Film School in the USA, and gained positions at a range of media companies, including Youtube.
