Our Foundation Degree in Media Production is designed to develop you into an industry-ready individual with an exceptional understanding of the creative industries. You’ll be challenged to create and academically analyse content using various methods of media, including animation, film, photography, editing, design, website, mobile, radio and graphics, ensuring that you gain a clear understanding of the dynamic state of contemporary media within a local, national and global context, and how media production contributes to the evolution of creative practice. The flexible study programme, involving workshop and project-based study, will help you to acquire skills that will equip you for a range of employment contexts and enable you to take control of your career choices. Each of the project-based modules is rooted within a live commission or competition and will have a published outcome – one that will invite and encourage dialogue with the local media scene and beyond.

The FdA Media Production course is designed to help our students become employable in a number of ways. A core part of the course involves helping students to establish themselves as freelancers so that they can generate and complete paid commissions, but students are also encouraged to develop an impressive portfolio and to work to professional standards (in terms of their punctuality and ability to meet deadlines). Media practice requires a great deal of self-motivation, resilience and professionalism, and our course encourages these qualities and many more.

Work Experience

Our students take advantage of the richness of the UK creative industries and complete a work experience placement as part of their second year of study. This placement lets students experience the reality of working in a fast-paced and exciting industry, and the challenges that come with it. We encourage all of our students to work on a freelance basis, and aid them in establishing their brand and working alongside clients on paid commissions.

What are my career options?

• Production role in the film and TV industry, such as camera operator, sound engineer, editor and more • Producer or director • Freelance media practitioner • Graphic designer • Sound and music producer • Scriptwriter
