Want a career in TV? Here’s how our students get themselves in the running 🎬 Our BA (Hons) Television Production students on the perks of being based at Maidstone Studios, where they’ve been working on the upcoming Alan Partridge series. There are many roles within the world of television, and most people begin their journey building vital experience as a runner, helping out on set with anything a production’s cast and crew might need. But finding that opportunity to “get your foot in the door” in the first place can be tricky. “If you can get work experience while you’re at university, then you’ll graduate far better prepared,” says Laura Coull, Work Placement and Production Co-ordinator for our BA (Hons) Television Production course. This can often come down to having industry connections. Luckily, UCA’s BA (Hons) Television Production students have a unique opportunity to build their knowledge AND their network at the same time. As part of our long-standing partnership with Maidstone Television Studios, our students are based at the studios full-time throughout their degree, attending academic sessions in a dedicated learning area while getting hands-on experience on the studio floor. And last year the course was recognised as one of the best in the country for training work-ready graduates when it gained the prestigious ScreenSkills Select accreditation. 🎞 Read the full blog: https://bit.ly/3py7lHH #WeareUCA #MakersofUCA #tvproduction #production #tv #television #behindthescenes #filmmaking #cinematography #videoediting #filmproduction #videoproduction #tvshow
