Film & TV

Overview

UCA has been named the number one specialist creative university in The Guardian Good University Guide 2018 and the Complete University Guide 2018, and you have the potential to achieve and create great things here. We produce Oscar and BAFTA winning filmmakers and animators, and we’re proud that our students regularly win awards in recognition of their work – including animators such as Michael Dudok de Witt and the creators of ‘Peppa Pig’ and ‘Hey Duggee’.

Our Film and TV courses have been ranked in the top 10 in the UK by the Guardian university league tables 2018 and are perfectly placed to provide a creative environment in which students can learn and hone their skills. The friendships students form often lead to collaborations across various creative disciplines, further enriching their knowledge.

On each of our courses, the staff team at UCA will nurture your abilities and encourage you to aim high. Some of our tutors have worked with Aardman Animation, the BBC, British Animation Awards, Channel 4, Disney, Game of Thrones, Steve McQueen and Sheffield Doc/Fest, and a number of staff and visiting professionals have BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Sky, HBO and Discovery connections.

Whether you choose film, television or animation, you’ll join a team of graduates who leave UCA with professional skills and an understanding of teamwork in the workplace. You will apply advanced problem-solving skills to interpret briefs and translate them into original and imaginative output.
