Studying Film and TV

What to look forward to

Being industry ready means very different things to different people so at Middlesex we take an extremely personal approach to your employment.

Our experienced tutors will support you to work in a way that suits you and your specific ambitions and career goals.

Reach your full creative potential

You’ll have our state-of-the-art facilities at your fingertips to help develop your own creative identity and produce your best possible work, including: a TV production suite designed by Sony, Avid Media Composer Edit Suites, a dedicated recording studio, a motion capture suite and a greenscreen virtual studio.

Our studio and location filming equipment includes over 60 HD video cameras, Canon DSLRs Kits with prime and zoom lenses, Blackmagic Cinema Camera Kits, Lighting Kits and much more.

We're back on campus for teaching

Your timetable will be built around teaching time using our facilities on campus with online sessions for some activities where being virtual adds value. That means it’s not going to be like 2020 over again. We've combined the best of our pre-pandemic teaching with what's worked best for students while they've been learning at home.

We’ve planned your learning so it has most benefit for you. For example, if studying film, you will attend workshops on campus where you’ll be able to try things out with the support of your tutors and classmates, honing your technical skills.

You’ll also take part in seminars in person so that you’re able to best explore and test ideas and approaches to practice, as well as set building and craft sessions in the studio.

Directing and other practical aspects of the degree will also take place in person to ensure that students are fully trained and prepared for the practicalities and realities of single camera production.

If studying TV and Digital Production, you will have access to our industry standard television studio, giving you the opportunity to gain hands-on experience that replicates the industry working environment.

  • Innovative teaching that's enhanced by technology

    Our teaching and learning approach is evidence based and designed using feedback from students and staff during the pandemic and in previous years.

    Our Film students particularly liked having the Film Entrepreneurship modules online, including an industry led ‘teaching’ week made up of workshops on freelancing, self-confidence, starting a business and much more.

    We are currently planning the expansion of this for the new academic year, tapping into a variety of other online resources like Linkedin Learning

    TV students enjoyed having industry speakers online, as well as having some of the theory lectures delivered virtually.

    We’re looking forward to continuing this way of learning, and enhancing it with some additional online instructional technical content, planned and drop-in sessions, allowing students to re-watch and refresh themselves on how to use certain types of cameras, lights and other production equipment and software

    We use technology to enhance your learning and put you in control. For example, we will also be continuing to offer online resources such as Adobe Creative Suite, Education licences in AutoCad, and Remote Access to DMWs and Editing Suites.
