Richard Deverell, BBC
Our graduates go into a range of jobs, not just in theatre, film and television, but also in other careers such as teaching. They work as actors, writers, camera and sound operators, visual effects designers, and in many production roles. They work for organisations like the BBC and the Royal Shakespeare Company; and companies like ITV and Industrial Light and Magic. In the creative world most people are freelance, so we keep track as best can - for a full list see our graduate and student achievement page.
