A large number of graduates from MA in Digital Film and Television Production have made striking progress in their careers since completing their course. We believe that Skillset accreditation – the key industry ‘kite mark’ for university production courses – has been an important contributing factor. But so has the emerging talent of our graduates, which has been a pleasure to see. There’s quite a wide variety of career paths. Graduates have joined the lighting and camera department in the German film industry, become editors in Soho (the heart of the British film and television industry), a production assistant for a major Channel 4 drama series, a newspaper journalist, an author who has published his first novel while script reading for a Hollywood production company, and a development executive for a Spanish broadcaster. These skills will make you suitable for graduate jobs in many areas of work.
