Overview

We want your ideas and your imagination to become part of our course. Whether that’s in writing the scripts, filming on location, editing, digital effects, or directing and producing the whole film, you’ll find you have lots of opportunities to be a creative filmmaker at Bucks New University.

From the lecture hall to the cutting-room floor
Through a mix of lectures, seminars and practical workshops, we help you learn the skills you need in a modern media business. You’ll cover camera, lighting, sound, editing and all elements of planning and pre-production, bringing them together to produce a range of fiction and non-fiction films.

We treat you like professional filmmakers. Films are analysed and deconstructed so you can apply those techniques to your work. Our students don’t just stop at learning about film and television, they cover webcasting as well.

Expert teaching from professionals in their fields
The course team have a range of experience in the film and television industry. We teach in professional standard recording and filmmaking facilities. As well as lectures, we have professional masterclasses, guest speakers, and work experience opportunities designed to prepare you for a career in film and television.

Students also benefit from filming weeks, location shooting and outside broadcasts. All of these have different demands and require flexible and organised thinking.

This course is industry recognised by ScreenSkills, the industry-led skills body for the UK’s screen-based industries, and carries the ScreenSkills quality-mark which indicates courses best suited to prepare students for a career in the screen industries.

This course is also accredited by JAMES, which recognises the quality and suitability of a specific course to meet industry needs.

Career opportunities

We provide you with the opportunity to work in placements where you’ll gain real experience. Many of our students end up being fully employed by the company they worked for during their placement.

Some of these companies include: BBC, Chyron-Hego, BT Sport, CTV, Celador Productions, Nickelodeon, Pinewood Studios, Sky Sports, SKY TV and Talkback Thames.

You’ll get the chance to work on big projects In 2012, we had more than 25 undergraduates employed across many of the London Olympics sites, from Dorney Lake to the Olympic stadia. These students have now graduated and are working in sports and live events broadcast, a direct result of our commitment to working closely with our industry partners for the benefit of our graduating students.
