Ranking and student feedback
Could you create a hit format like Strictly Come Dancing, The Apprentice or Gogglebox? Would you like to direct a rock band in our multi-camera 4K TV studio?This innovative course is designed to fast-track students into the TV entertainment industry. We run our course like a production company: at any given time we are either in pre-production, shooting or post-production: with our students pitching, producing and directing their own TV shows.This intensely practical course focuses on major entertainment genres, including factual entertainment, game shows, magazine shows and music shows. Students learn to develop, script, produce and direct their own programmes: with all production costs met by the school.Students experience the programme cycle from the brainstorming of an idea right through to transmission, with specifically tailored modules taught by top television professionals. In the second year, students will be paired up as producers and directors to make their own TV show pilot.Students also get to pitch their entertainment ideas to broadcasters, including SKY and the BBC.There is a huge amount to fit into two years, so the course is demanding, rewarding and requires a thoroughly professional attitude from the students.

Applicants must be able to demonstrate their passion, commitment and talent for developing a career in Entertainment Television. While many applicants will have a degree from a British or overseas university, we will consider applicants who do not have a degree if they have an impressive portfolio, a creative track record (for instance, in theater or other arts) or an alternative qualification.
