University of Gloucestershire Media Production

About

You will cover a range of subjects including interactive design, contemporary moving image, web technologies, graphics and animation right from your first year. You will also have opportunities to develop in progressive and emergent fields such as app development and Virtual Reality, with tools including Bublcam and Google Project Tango. The Media Production programme is delivered by University of Gloucestershire.

Work placements are built into the curriculum, giving you essential real-world skills and industry contacts. Students have worked for many high-profile media outlets including production companies, newspapers and start-ups, producing exciting digital content. Strong links with industry mean that you will be able to meet and learn from respected practitioners. Guests at the annual media school festival have included YouTube entrepreneurs Yogscast and head of digital for BT Sport’s social media content editor, Leigh Moore.

You can also take part in field trips, previously the university has visited the BBC, the Annecy International Animated Film Festival, Amsterdam for a transmedia project and NBC New York, taking a tour of sets including the newsroom, Saturday Night Live and the Rosie O’Donnell Show.

Study styleUniquely to this degree, your first year will give you the ability to experiment with a wide range of different media and skills within a ground-breaking new course structure. Based around emergent concepts such as Google’s ‘Sprint’ Project, the curriculum design itself will help you develop contemporary skills. You will have opportunities to elect specialist pathways of study throughout your three years, and in your final year you will bring everything together in a large self-directed project, plus research projects and a work placement.
