Course content

This course aims to provide you with a range of creative, practical and critical skills to apply within and beyond the television industry. You will learn about the developing media landscape and emerging trends and practices. Practical sessions are designed to develop your skills and the techniques necessary to generate, develop and produce TV production ideas.

Why Study Television Production with us?

Television Production is taught at Warrington Campus, which lies between the creative and cultural hubs of Manchester and Liverpool and in close proximity to MediaCityUK.

Our Television Production students have twice won the prestigious Production Award at the BBC’s annual Developing Talent Conference, in addition to other accolades such as Royal Television Society Student Television Awards.

You will be encouraged and supported to make industry connections and undertake work experience. There will also be opportunities to work on ‘live’ briefs and showcase work at the annual Department of Media event.

What will I learn?

The course blends theoretical and practical learning, enabling students to develop a critical understanding of the conventions, techniques and current practices in television production and use this knowledge to produce projects.

Modules aim to develop thinking multi-skilled practitioners; you will engage with the whole production process, from writing 'treatments' to editing, and from production management to editorial decision-making.

How will I be taught?

You will have 24-hour access to professional resources, including digital cameras, edit facilities, a TV studio and the Tower Gallery, which includes a multimedia suite and voice-over booth.

You will learn via a mixture of lectures, seminars, tutorials and workshops, as well as guest lectures from industry professionals.

Approximate contact hours for a full-time student will be up to nine hours per week. The expected individual learning activity for a full-time student will be approximately 32 hours per week.

How will I be assessed?

Assessment is through group and individual practical work and written coursework. For the Television Project, you will pursue your particular interests through either a dissertation or research by practice.
