Could you create a hit format like Strictly Come Dancing, The Apprentice or Gogglebox? Would you like to direct a rock band in our multi-camera 4K TV studio or shoot your show on location?
This innovative course is designed to fast-track students into the TV entertainment industry. We run our course like a production company –we are either in pre-production, shooting or in post-production – with our students pitching, producing and directing their own TV shows.
Students are taught by top industry professionals on location and in our state-of-the-art studio. In recent years, our students have sold entertainment formats to Warner Brothers Television and ITV and graduation projects have won prestigious awards from the New York Television Festival and the Royal Television Society.
This course is industry recognised by ScreenSkills, the industry-led skills body for the UK’s screen-based industries, and carries the ScreenSkills Select quality-mark which indicates courses best suited to prepare students for a career in the screen industries.
