Get ahead with our Creative Skillset accredited degree

Develop your creative and teamwork skills on this fast-paced and exciting course. You’ll work with our industry-standard cameras and in our professionally-equipped studio to produce programmes for television and other platforms. Gaining specialist skills in single and multi-camera production, you’ll explore a range of genres including documentaries, dramas and entertainment programmes. The majority of your learning is practical, working in our modern HD studio as well as on location. Alongside learning from our teaching team, which includes experienced BBC and ITV producers and directors, you’ll have the opportunity to work with leading businesses in the creative industries.

Working with Cheltenham Festivals, you’ll have the chance to film and vision-mix large events, and with local sports clubs to produce interviews and game-highlights packages. You’ll also gain a thorough understanding of governing ethical and legal frameworks, critical to professional practice.

The course has a very strong sense of community. Our highly successful alumni are regularly able to invite current students to work on very high profile shows such as X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent. We also organise regular trips to recordings of shows with backstage access to directors and other members of the production team for example BBC One’s The Living and The Dead.

Study style

Television Production is a practical course and you will gain solid grounding in the production process, technical and craft skills while also developing your creativity and team work. Core modules in your first year will cover all aspects for television including drama, documentary and entertainment. You will then explore your area of interest before developing your final project in your third year; a programme made to broadcast standards in either multi or single camera in any of the three areas. As part of this project you will get to pitch your ideas to a panel of industry experts. A two week work placement built into the degree will also give you essential industry experience before you graduate. In addition, our technical staff are AVID certified trainers and you could gain AVID certification as part of the degree.
