"I'm really thrilled by all of the opportunities I have had whilst studying, I couldn't be more set for the industry; I've had experience on professional film sets, offers from London film companies and my debut film has so far been really successful."

"While studying at the University of Worcester, I have learnt various new skill sets which have enabled me to pursue my own career in the digital arts. The constant help and support of fellow tutors has driven me to accomplish my goals, achieve new learning outcomes and experience many different mediums available within such a flexible and broad course.

"There are so many opportunities available throughout this course, each tutor there to push you throughout the three years to become a successful individual in your own creative field. Due to this, myself and another peer Sophie Smith have built our own wedding photography and videography business which wouldn't have been possible without the support of fellow tutors, helping to push our brand identity into a competitive market and adapt into creative individuals.

"My time at the university studying this course has been nothing but positive, I have learnt so many new skills and have opened my mind to the various opportunities this course offers. The high standard of lecturers, classes, facilities and scope has made my experience something I will never forget, the support received has helped prepare me for a bright future within the creative field."

Teaching and assessment

How will you be taught?

Creative Media modules enable you to develop expertise in areas of visual communication and digital design including video, photography, motion graphics, visual effects and web content.

As well as developing your creative work and digital 'skills', you will be introduced to the creative industries and the multitude of professions and careers associated with them. Many of your projects will respond to 'live' briefs set in collaboration with industry professionals. With their own, impressive experience as creatives, your lecturers, too, are expertly placed to share with you their inside knowledge of professional work.

Film Production offers opportunities to explore a broad range of film forms and cultures, including fiction and documentary forms and commercial and experimental production.

You can specialise as you progress through the course and, if you wish, tailor your studies to focus on career specialisms including producing, directing, sound, cinematography, post-production, and visual effects. The craft skills of production are integral to your learning throughout and you are encouraged to experiment and explore your talents towards developing your own creative 'voice'. Film Production is characterised by its practical approach to learning (you learn through making), by the value that it places on nurturing creative individuality and by its encouragement of a critically reflective approach.
