Media Production in Wales Getting into the industry

What you will study

The first year of your University Media production course includes practical production modules focused on concept development and an introduction to script-writing, video, audio / sound design and interactive design and construction, balanced with a theory module to help develop your understanding of the industry. In the first year of the course you focus on exploring and developing your creativity and choose your favourite area of interest within the industry.

In your second year of the course you will begin to specialise further into production teams by elaborating your skills within your most liked production roles on factual and fiction shorts, commercials, promos and within interactive story-telling. You will also begin to learn about the media industry by working on ‘live’ external client briefs.

Within your second and third year of the course, there is an opportunity for students to commit to a year’s work placement, and obtain valuable work experience to intensify future employment in the industry.

In the final year of the course there will be an opportunity provided for you to set up production teams to complete your Major Projects; your role in a Major Project will be focused on the specific area of interest you have chosen from the start of the year. The Major Project will be supported by your personal essay which will provide the research basis for your approach and involvement.

Your work will be assessed through coursework and assignments. This will also include group work and individual projects.
