We believe that you learn best by doing, so over the duration of the course you not only develop a robust portfolio but the skill set needed to enter the workplace.
This course is designed to give you a comprehensive understanding of the media production industry and to help you to develop a wide range of technical production skills. Thereâs an emphasis on creativity and modules are structured to allow you to explore your own creative interests as you refine your professional practice.
Year 1 allows you to experience the breadth of opportunities available in content production, establishing a strong technological and theoretical foundation in production methods and delivery formats.

You are expected to push your creative ability to the limit and are supported throughout with tutorials and professional development, together with modules designed to enhance your professionalism, portfolio and employability.

Application deadline details:
Winchester was such a pretty, lovely place to study. It’s a real community oriented university, you’ll get to know everyone here which is great. The nightlife isn’t crazy like, say, Brighton, there are a few nice clubs here, The SU throws the Bop every Wednesday is bloody mental, and if you want to have a really good night out you can get a cheap taxi down to Southampton. My tutors were really supportive, and they drove me to the best of my ability - they offered great feedback and were always available for a chat.

I would rate it as a 3 I was satisfied being in winchesterbut the location of the student house off the campus was so far away from uni it does take me 30-45 to walk. Not many buses going around at all.
