Undergraduate awards typically reflect three to five years of study after secondary school and include Ordinary (Level 7) and Honours Bachelor Degrees and Higher Diplomas (Level 8's).
Undergraduate awards may be achieved directly or through a series of progression steps. Learners may choose to progress upwards from a Level 5 to a Level 6, Level 7 and finally a Level 8.
Undergraduate awards are awarded by the HETAC or Higher Education Institutes.
3rd level Graduates are qualified for a wide range of occupations, and their education prepares them for roles involving specific skills, and for coordinating, supervising, managing, or training others. Examples include accountants, sales managers, computer programmers, teachers, chemists, environmental engineers, criminal investigators, and financial analysts.
Film & Broadcasting is about telling stories - whether fiction or factual. It combines high standards of training in production skills to make programmes - dramas and documentaries for radio, television and cinema, with a solid academic education in media theory and contextual studies. While the core focus is on ‘traditional’ media, students in this programme will also study ‘new’ media forms, which still require all of the ‘traditional’ skillsets and are really about delivering stories in different formats or supporting ‘traditional’ story telling (e.g. a TV programme) in different ways.
Our students develop original content in drama and documentary, working across diverse media formats such as photography, video, radio, television, and digital media. Using high quality facilities, students develop professional production skills that are transferrable across increasingly convergent media environments.
Modules in production are underpinned by theoretical study in the relevant fields of documentary, narrative film and broadcast forms, as well as a study of the cultural and sociological context in which the media operates.
F&B requires both passion and discipline. The best films, documentaries, and radio features, come from students who are interested in the wider world, who have an awareness of current affairs and how socio-political forces shape and respond to society, who have curiosity and openness - an eagerness to learn and to understand people, systems (of all kinds), or history. Students in this stream will widen their production skills to develop competencies in converged media production. They will also take complementary theoretical studies with a specific focus on society in the digital age.

Graduates work in all aspects of production and post-production, in broadcasting, in corporate media, in film-making.
The graduate’s career path is largely determined by the individual’s interests and specialisations, although with a rounded education, our graduates are extremely flexible. Some go into the supporting roles of production to work towards a career as a producer or director, others go into cameras/cinematography, sound recording, sound post-production, editing, programme development; others go into journalistic roles.
Graduates have gone on to a wide range of higher degrees: some specialise in film or media studies, creative writing, or literature studies, others go into socio-political research; some go into journalism, others digital media. The emphasis on independent research and the academic process of writing a dissertation prepares our graduates extremely well for post-graduate studies.
