Ranking and student feedback
University of the Arts London has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
MA Television delivers the skills needed to design and make fact-based television. Learn about pitching, budgeting and translating your ideas into practical, hands-on advanced programming. This course is taught at London College of Communication, at Elephant and Castle, part of University of the Arts London (UAL). Why choose this course at London College of Communication• A focus on factual programming: The course combines advanced practical training in factual programme making with research-based analysis of the television industry today; its values, its genres, its development processes, its production practices, and the proliferating platforms available to programme makers.• A focus on self-employment: The course is designed primarily: but not exclusively: for those who wish to work in, or run, small-to-medium sized production companies, or become freelance producer/directors. The latter provides a large and constant component of the UK production base (and increasingly beyond), but one that is yet to be catered for in many screen schools.• Business planning: You'll produce both a programme (or other moving-image product) and a researched business plan, accompanied by an explanatory narrative, identifying your target market. The programme and plan will be the outcome of guided analysis and research so by graduation you will already have developed a highly viable pitch for your first offer to the television industry.• The TV studio: Our TV studio is of a very high professional standard, with a new Tricaster mixing desk that allows for a wide range of effects and computer-generated imagery. • Mastery of this resource will further distinguish you from the majority of media and film school Master's-level graduates.•Industry contacts: The MA will draw on London College of Communication's wide range of contacts in the London TV industry to provide visiting lecturers, workshop leaders, critiques and introductions to networks of graduates now working in media in London. It will allow and encourage you to take full advantage of our contacts with the British Film Institute. You will have access to the many specialist cinemas, studios, facilities houses and media events that are features of London's busy and varied media life. About London College of CommunicationLondon College of Communication is for the curious, the brave and the committed: those who want to transform themselves and the world around them.
