The HND is equivalent to the first two years of a standard three-year university degree. You’ll study for two years with us and then you can progress to a one-year university top-up programme to earn a full degree. If you already have a relevant HNC, you can study just the one year with us.
If you're interested in developing filmmaking and post-production skills this course is ideal. It builds on experimental and creative development, including digital video, sound and audio, and a strong core in film theory and artistic integrity. The use of digital techniques and analogue film production using Steenbeck 16mm editing tables is a constant element of the course. You'll build and develop a portfolio of work to show to potential employers or universities.
The course is made up of individual units, most of which are practical but carry a theory element. Academic writing skills are important at this level of course.
- Interview and presentation techniques for tv
- Producing tv adverts and promotional videos
- Script writing for moving image fiction
- Project design, implementation and evaluation
