What have you learnt from your programme?

“The real question is what HASN’T this course taught me? Before starting, I had no idea about how the film and television industry worked. I learnt so much about pre-production processes, filming and post-production, from how to research and develop an idea to how to use Adobe Premiere Pro to edit footage. I can say with full confidence that this Master’s programme has helped me to break down and understand the film and television world in a way that makes sense to me. I now know, for example, where to look for certain ideas, what frames and shots I should use, how to manage light during filming and in post-production and how to feel proud of the work I have done! I can graduate knowing my course has instilled a new form of confidence and self-belief in myself that I would not have developed on my own.”

What is life like as a student at the University of Birmingham?

“Life as a student at the University of Birmingham is incredible. Everyone is so lovely, kind and welcoming – both students and staff – and there is a large emphasis on making the university a second home. There is an endless and ever-growing list of societies to join, events to attend and Fab nights to attend at Joe’s! The facilities are modern and up-to-date, with a wide range of study spaces to choose from, whether this be in the library group study rooms or in the Law building."
