Subject

Television production

Our Television Production degree will enable you to develop the skills you need to devise exciting stories and ideas – and to transform them into eye-catching visual content for a range of TV channels, genres and platforms.

Our award-winning media professionals – many of whom are active in the industry – will help you unlock the secrets of making memorable, audience-friendly TV.

You’ll get practical, hands-on experience in camera operating, producing, directing, script-writing, editing and presenting. In our fully-equipped TV studios, you’ll learn how to work as a vision mixer, floor manager and autocue operator. And you’ll also learn the challenging art of location filming.

Towards the end of your first year, you’ll use your newly-acquired skills – and test your ability to work within a team – in a challenging month-long project culminating in a live TV broadcast.

Whether you’re a fan of Blue Planet, The Yorkshire Vet, Love Island or one of Louis Theroux’s documentaries, you’ll discover the importance of casting contributors and story-telling – so vital in today’s competitive TV industry.

Our focus on employability – and our outstanding contacts with skilled professionals – will help prepare you for today’s TV industry. And you can also choose to spend a life-changing semester studying abroad, with our partner universities in countries like Australia, Germany, Pakistan and the USA.

By the time you graduate, you’ll have a wealth of experience and a portfolio of TV content to impress future employers, so often the key to securing that all-important first foot on the career ladder.

**Professional placements**
Your professional work placements will give you the chance to work in some of the top media companies across the UK. Our students have recently made an impact during placements, helping to make successful shows such as Come Dine With Me, The Yorkshire Vet, Helicopter ER, A New Life in the Sun and Emmerdale.

**Career opportunities**
Leeds Trinity works with leading independent production companies including True North, Daisybeck and Joi Polloi. Recent graduates are already working in these organisations in content delivery, production coordinator and researcher roles.
