MSc Science Media Production
This course is for those who want to train to work specifically in the broadcast media or film and who would prefer to undertake a production project rather than a research dissertation. Academic study is focused on audio-visual production and students undertake a practical television or radio production project. An internship or work placement forms part of the course.
This course can only be taken full-time over one calendar year. All formal class sessions for the first two terms (about six to eight hours per week) are organised on three days per week—currently Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. Arrangements are more fluid for the rest of the year when students are either on work placements or are engaged in practical project work. All students are expected to commit considerable time to private study during the course. In the case of full-time students this should take up at least three days a week in addition to the two days of classes. A term by term rundown of the course content can be found on our pages.
The Wellcome Trust funds provides up to three studentships for this MSc. Please see funding for more information.
