Traditional and new media industries are evolving and boundaries are being blurred. Television is now cross platform and the context of viewing is altered as consumers can now switch rapidly between watching TV, interacting with media-rich entertainment, social networking and using office tools.
The industry requires graduates who understand and can handle diverse technologies and creative processes. The aim of the programme is to produce technically competent graduates with a creative edge who can design and process materials for a cross platform delivery. Students will develop an innovative and flexible approach to technology and content creation. Graduates will understand the potential of interactivity and software driven media. If you have an interest in evolving forms of digital entertainment and television production, or if you do not want to specialise and want to build experience in a variety of digital media production areas then this is the programme for you.
The following is an indication of current programme content. However, the rapidly changing nature of the subject area means that both the courses offered, and individual course content, are likely to change in future years.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
