Film and Media Production

Film and Media Production

Film Making degrees, as the name suggests, provide you with the necessary skills and experience to help launch a career in film-making.

Degrees often have a strong focus on practical work, meaning that rather than learning simply learning how to make a film, you get hands-on experience and an opportunity to apply the methods and skills as you learn them.
Among the numerous aspects of such a degree, a typical film-making course may involve learning skills such as editing, script-writing and production.
Media Production degrees are similar but include more types of media than just film.

Digging deeper into subject interests can help you in a number of ways:

  • Confirm whether this is (or isn't) something you would be interested in enough to want to study it at university either as the focus of your degree or a minor/elective

  • Give you some inspiration to use when creating your questions and topics for IA's (coursework) and your Extended Essay

  • Provide you with content for your university application writing in the future, enabling you to reflect on the things you've been doing to explore your interests in a way that is academically relevant to the course or institution you are applying for.
