About the FdA TV Production programme

The FdA in TV Production has been uniquely developed to bridge the gap between academic studies and the entrepreneurial, technical and creative skills that the industry increasingly wants from graduates.

All course modules have been developed with employability in mind, and you will spend time working as part of the production staff with Estuary TV – the longest running local TV station in the UK. You will design and create title sequences for TV Programmes, spend time creating and producing your own programming, and ultimately work alongside actors producing a full length drama in the second year.
These ultimately allow you to develop a portfolio and the contacts that will help you directly access the industry on successful completion of the course.
Don’t just study TV… be part of it!

Entry requirements

Standard entry requirement for the degree will be 80 UCAS points, with a minimum of grade ‘C’ in both GCSE Maths & English. This equates to MMP at Btec National Diploma level, grades CCD at ‘A’ Level, and on the Diploma Foundation Studies (Art, Design & Media) this is equal to a Merit.

However, in line with the widening participation brief and lifelong learning strategy, the Institute will also encourage applications from non-traditional learners who lack formal academic qualifications. All such non-traditional applicants will be interviewed, set an appropriate piece of work (an academic text and a practical task depending on their skill level) and a judgement made taking into account their academic potential and relevant experience.
