Course summary document can be found here – BA(Hons) Production Arts (Stage and Screen) Course Key Facts

In the first three terms the course provides a grounding in all the core production disciplines needed to work as a professional.

During this first year students learn theoretical and practical aspects of stage management, lighting, sound, prop-making and scenic construction. Students also learn a range of common skills: communication, problem solving, time management and leadership.

 

In the second year, BA Hons students then broaden their training by being involved in a range of theatre productions and film/radio drama recordings.

These include one 11-week term based at our Christchurch Studios in Clifton village. Students work on location film shoots, stop-motion animation and audio recordings.

In their final year, students specialise in their chosen discipline and continue training in either theatre production or in film and TV.

Students will spend up to five weeks on placement with a professional production company or organisation. This is an integral part of the final year enabling students to match their career aspirations to the practical reality of a work environment.

Students are also offered interviews with professionals from the relevant industry.

Our success in graduate employment is excellent.

Graduates go on to have careers in a wide range of jobs including in stage management, lighting, sound, automation and construction working with companies such as the RSC, The Globe, The Royal National Theatre, Cameron Mackintosh, Welsh National Opera, Birmingham Royal ballet etc and numerous other UK regional rep companies and international theatre and production companies.

Students specialising in Film and TV find employment on Feature Films, TV location filming and post production, Animation and a wide range of independent film production.

Students developing and growing in confidence during their time here, seeing their work reaching professional standards in approach and execution; a student who intends to be a stage manager producing a wonderful sound design; a first year student making a lovely recording of a song for their recording project; tracking the careers of former students and seeing them be successful; being able to find a job opportunity for a recent graduate.
