I've been offered places at four out of the five unis I applied to to study film and tv production… but I can't decide if its actually worth studying it?

This day and age you're going to need all the help you can get to get established unless you know someone in the industry. Just completed my 2nd year on a media course where its mainly practical and I'm specialising in film, not only have I learnt a wealth of knowledge about media and how it effects people but also a lot about the industry and made contacts. I was also thinking the same as you before I started. Now I'm glad I have done. Opened my eyes a lot.

It's worth studying, provided the course you are doing has a lot of practical elements to it. You will be hired for your skills rather than your academic prowess. I'd hire someone without a degree but with a year or two of solid experience over a fresh graduate with a first. Really try and secure yourself a placement year, it will give you incredible amounts of experience and kickstart your network. I'm very glad I did a placement.

Hi there,

I was just wondering what university are you in? I have also decided on pursuing a course in film and tv production and have received offers from University of East Anglia and University of Westminster. Do you think these universities would offer a well-balanced amount of both theory and practical elements in film?

The thread is more than three years old.

I know from reading the module list that UEA leans more towards theory.

EDIT: You have asked this question before and received the same answer.
