Career opportunities

CAREER MANAGEMENT SKILLS

This course has the media industry at its heart. The material you
will cover within the course is not confined to a single academic
discipline but is selected because of its relevance to the way the
industry functions. This will ensure that everything you study will
contribute to your personal intellectual development and also be
applicable to a career in the media. You will maintain an online
portfolio / showreel of all your work as you progress through the
course.

Your career in the media starts when you join the course, not when
you leave. From the outset, you will be encouraged to relate your
ideas to opportunities in the media. Throughout your second year you
will explicitly study current and emerging industry practices and the
ways in which people start and develop their career. You will be
encouraged to develop direct industry contacts through master classes
given by visiting industry professionals and you may also participate
in community based production projects to get a feel for how real
projects operate. Some students may access work placement
opportunities. These can count towards your degree if appropriately
designed and completed.

The University provides excellent support for career management and
so an introduction to these services will be included within the
second year unit Working in the Media.

The final term of your third year will be devoted to a single, large
project. This is an opportunity to bring together all the skills you
have learnt and to produce the best possible piece of work you can,
under simulated industry conditions. The final product will form the
centerpiece of your portfolio / showreel and will help you demonstrate
your skills to prospective employers.

CAREER/FURTHER STUDY OPPORTUNITIES

Career:

The creative, analytical and practical skills you will acquire will
equip you for many different careers both within the media industries
and beyond. You will graduate with immediately relevant vocational
skills together with the ability to develop and plan your career,
capitalising on the intellectual skills that will serve you throughout
your life.

You will be ideally placed to contribute to media industry
developments and contribute to the next generation of media
developments.

On completing this course students are likely to progress into the
following areas:

  • Freelance/Contract media production, particularly in the areas of
    film and TV production
  • Graduate entry to major media employer training schemes
